Instagram Giveaway: Take the 2020 Census to Support Local, Support Our City & Get Counted!

Wednesday April 29, 2020

National Census Day was April 1 but there’s still time to be counted in the 2020 Census. It takes just a few minutes to get counted online, over the phone or by mail. The Census is a once-a-decade undertaking to count every person – regardless of age, nationality or immigration status – who currently lives in the U.S. Federal financial assistance, such as emergency funding in support of COVID-19 operations, is directly tied to the Census. And with the coronavirus increasing the risk of an undercount it extra important that we all get counted.

Through April 22 the national self-response rate was 52%, the DC self-response rate was 49% and response rate for Mount Vernon Triangle was slightly behind the rest of Ward 6. With so much at stake we must all do our part to make a difference.

That’s why to help not only our city but our MVT retailers, MVT CID is giving 10 lucky respondents $10 gift cards to any MVT CID retailer of your choice starting on April 30, 2020. We will be announcing the Census giveaway details on our Instagram account so stay tuned! In the meantime, please remember to take the 2020 Census. Because it’s more important than ever that we all support local, support our city and get counted!
