2020 Census
Responding to the Census | 2020 Census

Online:  https://my2020census.gov/
or by phone 1-844-330-2020 (scroll down for details and languages below)



Why fill out the census? How can it help me?
Answer: The census determines whether New York City receives its fair share of hundreds of billions distributed by the federal government every year for important programs and services. The more New Yorkers who fill out the census, the more money the city receives for schools, hospitals, transportation, job training, and so much more. The census also determines each state’s fair share of representation in Congress, as well as how local, state, and federal legislative district lines are drawn, meaning the power of New York City’s voice in Washington, D.C. and Albany is also based on the census.

What else?
Answer: Filling out the Census takes a few minutes, but it is vital for the well-being of our city. Our response rate will determine how much in federal dollars we receive for our schools, our hospitals, our infrastructure, and our housing. Counting every New Yorker is critical, and this is why the City Council, along with the mayor, designated $40 million to conduct census outreach in all of the city’s neighborhoods. We have to remember that census funds are directly linked to healthcare and the services that New York City’s communities depend on.

Undercounting New Yorkers would have a profound effect, depriving New York of its rightful representation in Congress and denying us millions of dollars in critical federal support for public higher education, including funding for programs like Pell Grants and health care services. CUNY's presence in every borough, along with our campuses' deep well of expertise and inclusiveness, makes us uniquely suited to help ensure that everyone has a voice in Census 2020.
