The census 2020 deadline has been extended!
Want a better future for the SGV? Be counted in the 2020 U.S. Census!
Active SGV is committed to helping the SGV count! You can help ensure funding for schools, health care, housing programs, road improvements, and more by making your household count in this year's census. Doing so will help ensure federal funding for crucial resources for a more equitable, sustainable, and livable San Gabriel Valley.
The 2020 Census is the best possible way to ensure adequate funding for programming and resources in our communities across the Gabriel Valley. Social programs around education, healthcare, housing, local infrastructure, and much more is dependent on census data collected every 10 years making it imperative that we make our voices heard in this 2020 cycle.
The Gabriel Valley has historically been a “Hard to Count” community for varying reasons. Active SGV is committed to guiding, aiding, and encouraging our neighbors to make themselves counted so that we may receive all of the funding our neighborhoods deserve to ensure a more equitable, sustainable, and livable San Gabriel Valley.
Active SGV‘s team is focusing efforts through this global pandemic on reaching those in the San Gabriel Valley through telephone-banking and social media efforts. We’re doing our part to share the best information available to help people understand that everyone counts in the 2020 Census regardless of race, gender, racial background, or immigration status. Our Census Outreach Team will be contacting over 10,000 individual households in the SGV through phone banking efforts and 50,000 through social media to help ensure an accurate count.
