NEA has been working to make sure all our members, students and communities are fully and properly counted in the U.S. Census, the federal government’s headcount of U.S. households that occurs every 10 years. The information collected by the Census is vitally important to the allocation of federal education funding to states and localities.

By now households should have received invitations in the mail to fill out the Census online (2020census.gov). Mailings will continue during the months of April and May, with door knocking scheduled to run May to August.
