Important Census Information

In an effort to meet the constitutional and legislative requirements to count the U.S. population, we urge Chaffee County residents to complete their 2020 Census at my2020census.gov or by phone at (844)330.2020. 

For those who have yet to receive their census invitation or paper questionnaire, it's OK to move forward with completing the census form online or by phone.  Simply use your address in lieu of your user I.D.

 Results from the 2020 Census will:

   * Guide federal funding
   * Provide data that will impact our community for the next 10 years

The current deadline to respond to the 2020 Census is August 14, 2020.
