The Time to Act is NowRespond to the 2020 Census!
Palatine's self-response rate is currently 78.8%.
We're making good progress, but we can do better!
Your response matters – as does that of your friends, family, and neighbors – because the results of the 2020 Census determine how many seats our state gets in the U.S. House of Representatives and informs how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding
will be allocated every year to communities like ours.
Over the next decade, lawmakers, business owners, and many others will use 2020 Census data to make critical decisions. The results will show where communities need new schools, new clinics, new roads, and more services for families, older adults, and children.
Complete your Census questionnaire by September 30.
Don’t miss your chance to be counted! Our community could miss out on funding every year for the next 10 years if you don’t respond now.
