Learn More About Census in New Garner PSA

It's critical that we get a full count of Garner residents in the upcoming Census. Why?

The Census helps determine how federal funding is distributed to fire and police departments, to hospitals and clinics, to schools and senior center and for things such as road and sidewalk projects.

In Garner, Census data has been used in recent years to help fund a roundabout project at White Oak, Ackerman and Hebron Church Roads, construction of the Garner Recreation Center and bulletproof vests and body-worn cameras for police. 

Census data also, of course, is used to decide how many seats we get in Congress—and to determine how lines are drawn for congressional districts, state legislative districts and school districts.

And consider this: Garner loses approximately $1,600 in federal funding for every person who is not counted. 

You will be receiving an invite to complete the easy Census questionnaire. You can do it online (for the first time ever), by phone or you can mail it in. If you don’t respond, a Census taker will follow up and assist you.

The personal information you provide is kept safe. By law, it can’t be shared with other government agencies, law enforcement or landlords.
