Your voice matters.
By April 1, 2020 – Census Day – individuals across the country will be asked to answer a short set of questions that will shape the future of the nation.
These questions can influence major decisions about federal funding for the State of Illinois and for our community. As the “community’s foundation”, we understand the importance of funding for organizations that raise the quality of life for those in the Fox River Valley. When everyone is counted, fairly and accurately, our communities can receive the resources they need. That means every response, every voice – your voice – matters.
To that end, we’ve compiled some helpful materials for you as Census Day approaches:
