This is the first year the Census is available online. Responding to the census is not only your civic duty; it also affects the amount of funding your community receives, how your community plans for the futures and your representation in government. Specifically, data from the 2020 Census are used to:
Ensure public services and funding for schools, hospitals, City services, etc.
Determine how many seats Arizona is allocated in the House of Representatives.
Census data helps determine the allocation of federal funding for 55 federal programs. For every person counted, the State of Arizona will receive $2,959 from the Federal Government. This will increase the State Shared Revenue for the City of Cottonwood
