'Mendocino Counts! 2020 Census' Website Launch

Post Date:01/17/2020 11:33 AM

Mendocino County is pleased to announce the ‘Mendocino Counts! 2020 Census’ Website, hosted at www.mendocinocounts.org. This website serves as an excellent resource for information about the 2020 Census, which takes place officially on April 1, 2020.

The Census occurs once every 10 years. It determines the number of representatives California will have in Congress, and determines how more than $675 billion in federal funding will be distributed to California and its counties. The census outcome is essential for: Local business owners, the dispersion of taxes, local government efforts to identify opportunities for improvement and local emergency services funding.

The website www.mendocinocounts.org is available in both English and Spanish, and has answers to the most frequently asked questions about the Census. When made available in March 2020, a link to the online 2020 census questionnaire and the census telephone number (available in 24 language) will be posted there.

This site also features a link to the U.S. Census Bureau’s employment website, where applications are currently being accepted for those who want to work for the Census in our county.

‘Mendocino Counts!’ is a coordinated outreach effort by the County of Mendocino, The Community Foundation of Mendocino County, The League of Women Voters, United Way of Wine Country, and multiple locally-based community organizations that comprise the Mendocino County Complete Count Committee (MCCCC).
