The Census & Why It Matters

Realtors, spread the word! Look out for the 2020 Census notice in your mail boxes coming April 1, and return with your responses as quickly as possible. It takes less time to complete than it does to finish your morning cup of coffee! The Census will drive more than $1.5 trillion in federal funds that support critical public policy programs in communities across the country. Make sure that you and your clients are counted. Learn more at nar.realtor/census.
