The census will never ask for Social Security numbers, bank or credit card numbers, money or donations, or anything related to political parties. The census is used to determine the amount of federal funds that will come back to our community to support clinics, schools, roads, public services and hundreds of other critical services and programs that make a difference in our lives every day.
