In an interview with Jose Pernalete, Miami Commissioner Esteban Bovo, stressed that the 2020 census has extended its term to October 31.
He affirms that this census allows federal governments to plan the next 10 years, and it also has the fundamental purpose of determining the particular needs of the different communities.
The information released by the 2020 Census will be used to determine which communities need new health clinics, better roads, fire stations, public transportation, and more services for families, seniors, and children.
In addition, the data also determines how federal funds will be distributed among more than 100 programs, such as Medicaid, Head Start, grants for community mental health services, and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
Bovo called on citizens to fill out this census as soon as possible and not to wait until the last day to do so. At the same time, he clarified that they can fill it out calmly since that information is not shared with migration or with the President.
