    Texas loses $1,578 per year for every resident not counted. That's money that could help fund school meals, affordable housing, groceries and much more.

    Due to COVID-19, the self-response date has been extended to August 14. While everyone is practicing social distancing, you can share the Census message virtually - over the telephone, via text, via social media, and email!

    Online participation and phone banks are live! The Census can be completed at https://2020census.gov/. Share that same link to ensure your family and friends are counted too.
