Homestead is counting on you! The City of Homestead encourages all residents to respond to the 2020 Census. Please click here to visit the City’s Census 2020 webpage for more information and learn how to identify a Census Bureau employee to avoid scams. The Census matters because it will determine how billions of dollars in federal funding are distributed all across America to cities just like Homestead. The funds that the City of Homestead receives from the federal government as a result of this process can go toward public services and infrastructure projects that are crucial to our growing city. The Census affects funding to not only cities but also to hospitals, fire departments, schools and many other local programs and services. The Census even determines how many seats Florida will have in the United States House of Representatives as well as how congressional and state legislative districts are drawn. The Census is secure and confidential. No federal law enforcement agency can access or use your data at any time. Let’s take advantage of this rare opportunity and ensure the community gets the maximum amount of resources possible. Get informed and be ready. Remember, your participation counts!
