2020 Census New Construction Program

The U.S. Census Bureau has asked the Florida Legislature’s Office of Economic and Demographic Research (EDR) to assist in “spreading the word” about the Bureau’s 2020 Census New Construction Program to local government officials.  The Program provides local, tribal, and state governments an opportunity to update the U.S. Census Bureau’s residential address list with living quarters for which construction is in progress during or after March 1, 2018 and completion is expected by Census Day, April 1, 2020.  

This Program helps ensure that the Census Bureau’s address list is as complete and accurate as possible by Census Day, April 1, 2020, to produce a complete and accurate population count.  Participation helps to ensure an accurate population count in your community; helps the federal government distribute more than $675 billion in funds annually for infrastructure, programs, and services; and helps your community plan for future needs.

Local governments have until June 14, 2019 to register for the program.
