      Make Pinellas Count!
       
      America gets one chance each decade to count its entire population – the 2020 Census is your chance to make sure we get our fair share as a community. The census count determines both the size of our state’s political representation and how billions of dollars are spent on federal and local programs. Public transit, affordable housing, school lunches, Medicaid and SNAP nutrition assistance are just a few examples of programs that rely on census data. Your response is secure, confidential and protected by law. This short survey is a civic duty laid out in the Constitution and it’s also vitally important to our community’s future. Let’s make Pinellas count!
