We are excited to announce that we are partnering with the City of Glendale and the U.S. Census Bureau to make sure that our community is accurately represented in the upcoming 2020 Census.
Census results are the basis for congressional representation and help determine how more than $675 billion in federal funds are distributed each year. Each resident counted represents approximately $3,000 per year in combined federal, state, and regional funds that support vital community programs such as education, healthcare, libraries, parks, senior services, transportation, and housing.

The census counts everyone living in the United States, regardless of immigration status. There are no questions regarding citizenship on the questionnaire and by law, the Census Bureau cannot share an individual’s responses with anyone, including other federal agencies or law enforcement. Residents will receive notifications from the Census Bureau by mail beginning March 12 and need to respond by the end of April. The questionnaire can be completed online, by phone, or by mail and should take less than 10 minutes to complete.
We hope this information is useful to you, and feel free to refer your family and neighbors who have questions about the Census to this page.
