The Census is Coming! 

Most areas in the United States will start to receive information on the Census in March. It is important for residents to know that the 2020 Census is making it easier to be counted --and it’s very important to be counted. The Census helps determine how funding is distributed and how much representation areas have.

In fact, in Prince George’s County your participation is worth over $18,000. Our Community loses thousands of dollars in federal funding over a 10-year period for each person who does not fill out their Census survey. COMPLETE YOUR CENSUS SURVEY.

It’s IMPORTANT, SAFE & EASY. You can respond by mail, phone, or online. Your personal information is legally protected and confidential.

At the Town of Cottage City, we want you to be informed about the Census. So, in the next few weeks you’ll be receiving newsletters like this one letting you know important information about the Census.

Another way you can participate in the Census is to be a Census taker. 

Are you signed up for our email updates on Constant Contact?  If not, please email us at townhall@cottagecitymd.gov so we can add you to our list! Please keep an eye out for our surveys. Our new round table discussions live on our local cable channel, will be hosted by our Town Manager and Chief of Police. Be on the lookout for the announced date being sent via Constant Contact, Facebook, website, and our cable channel! Going forward we will look for Ward Commissioner round table discussions where once a month, each Ward will have a round table held; where questions will be answered live!
