By law, every decennial (10 years), the US Census Bureau is required to count the population of the United States and submit that count to the President. An accurate count of the population serves as the basis for fair political representation and it also determines the amount of Federal and State funding dollars are available to a community to enhance the quality of life for its residents and businesses.
It is now more critical than ever for everyone to be represented correctly in the 2020 Census count. Our goal is to have 100% participation! As of July 22, 2020, 80% of households in our community have completed and returned their forms. In 2010, Delhi Township had a self-response rate of 83.1%, so we know we can do better than we currently are!
Back in April, you should have received your Census form, but if you misplaced it or if you never received it, please check out the following link: https://2020census.gov/en/mailings.html
Starting August 11, 2020, Census field staff will begin making door-to-door visits to households that have NOT submitted their census forms as part of the self-response process. The township encourages that you complete your forms prior to August 11, 2020, to expedite the process and to avoid a visit from Census field staff, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Here is the link for operational adjustments being made by the Census Bureau in relationship to the COVID-19 pandemic: https://2020census.gov/en/news-events/operational-adjustments-covid-19.html
