APRIL 1, 2010 IS HERE!

NATIONAL CENSUS DAY HAS ARRIVED!

According to the Census Bureau, MOUNT RAINIANS have only turned in 47% of the census form mailed out to them!

• Everyone in the United States must be counted. This includes people of all ages, races, ethnic groups; citizens and noncitizens.

• Census forms will be delivered or mailed to households in March 2010.

• Households should complete and mail back their forms upon receipt. Remember, we can’t move forward until you mail it back.

• Census Day is April 1, 2010. Responses to the census form should include everyone who will be living at your address on that date. (It is not necessary to wait until Census Day to return census forms, however. Forms should be returned as quickly as possible.) People should be counted at the residence where they live or sleep most of the time.

• The individual in whose name the housing unit is rented or owned should complete the form on behalf of every person living in the residence, both relatives and nonrelatives.

• Census workers will visit households that do not return forms to take the count in person.

MOUNT RAINIANS must be counted, IF WE ARE TO GET OUR FAIR SHARE OF THE more than $400 billion per year in federal funding to be distributed based on the 2010 CENSUS.
