  • Census Day is April 1, 2020

    We Count. We Rise. Be counted so San Benito County receives much needed federal funding for education, healthcare, transportation systems, and community services that are vital to our growth.


    The U.S. Census is a mandatory count of all people living in the United States and it happens every 10 years. Everyone Counts! Everyone in the United States must be counted, including children ages zero to 5, immigrants regardless of their immigration status and the homeless.

    El Censo de los Estados Unidos es un conteo obligatorio de todos los habitantes que se lleva acabo cada 10 años. ¡Todos contamos! Todos en los Estados Unidos son contados, incluso los niños de edades de 0 – 5, inmigrantes sin importar su estado inmigratorio, y personas desalojadas o sin hogar.

    Why does the Census matter?

    The Census is about funding and power: the population count of Hollister and all of San Benito County will determine the federal funding our communities will receive for programs such as free school lunch, roadwork and repair, medical services and food voucher and general benefits.

    The Census count will also determine the political boundaries of our region and Congressional representation we will have, the foundation of our democracy!

    The Census is completely confidential!

    ¿Por qué es importante el Censo?

    El Censo se trata de dinero y poder: la población contada por todo el Condado de San Benito determina la cantidad de fondos federales que recibiremos para programas tales como almuerzos escolares, construcción de carreteras, servicios médicos, y programas para alimentos y sostenimiento.

    El conteo de la población del Censo también determina los limites políticos y la representación en el Congreso, ¡la base de nuestra democracia!

    ¡El Censo es completamente confidencial?
