Don't forget to take the 2020 Census!

Don't forget to take the 2020 Census!

  
If you call Newport home - even for just part of the year - please take a few minutes and fill out the 2020 Census!
 

The 2020 Census will determine congressional representation, inform hundreds of billions in federal funding every year, and provide data that will impact our community for the next decade. 

Over the coming weeks, volunteers will be setting up mobile Census stations across the City to provide assistance to all those who haven't yet participated in this important tradition. Click here to find a location near you.
