The census is coming to you

The city of Peoria is offering help with residents in being counted for the U.S. Census 2020.

Peoria residents can receive a small gift card if they attend and fill out their census form for the city's next mobile event, 8 a.m.-12 p.m., June 6 at the Peoria Community Center parking lot, 8335 W. Jefferson Street.

The decade census count is extremely critical because it determines how Arizona municipalities will divvy up the state-shared funding determined by the decade count. State-shared revenues make up about 30% of Peoria’s general fund revenues, according to the city’s finance and budget department.

Response to the 2020 Census helps ensure that more than $675 billion in federal funds are directed to the right places to support education, roads, health care, firefighting and more each year.

The census also determines redistricting in the state and helps guide city planners on how to grow the city with the demographic information it provides.
