We are getting ready for the US 2020 Census. We need every person in Letcher County to be counted!
MAKE LETCHER COUNTY COUNT.
The results of the census are used to reapportion the House of Representatives determining how many seats each state gets.
Local Governments use the census for public safety and emergency preparedness.
Issuing of $675 billion in federal funds, grants and support to states, counties and communities is based on census data. Money is spent on schools, hospitals, roads, public works and other programs.
Starting March 12-20, 2020, you will get an invitation to respond online to the 2020 Census. If you don't want to fill out your census online, you will receive a questionnaire in the mail.
