Show Your Commitment to Prince George’s County by Completing Your 2020 Census Today

Dear Prince Georgians:

The news of this pandemic has been truly overwhelming. These past few weeks, we’ve all had to make major adjustments to our daily routines. Here in the County government, we’ve taken every step possible to ensure our residents are served during this challenging time. I’m writing today because now, we need your help. Today, April 1, is National Census Day, and we need every Prince Georgian to complete their Census.

The Census is a once-in-a-decade opportunity to accurately count the number of people in our County. Data collected during the Census is used to determined how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding are distributed each year. Unfortunately, in 2010, we experienced an undercount of our residents, the highest undercount in the State of Maryland. Because of that, we’ve missed out on approximately $363 million in federal funding since 2010 that could have gone to our schools, our roads, our hospitals, and so much more.

In light of the current pandemic, this funding takes on a whole new level of importance. We expect COVID-19 to have a major economic impact on our County, including our budget. We need every dollar we rightfully deserve in federal funding, to ensure we have the resources we need to rebuild after this crisis ends.

While you’re at home practicing social distancing, looking after your loved ones, and checking in on your relatives, don’t forget to fill out your Census. It’s the only way that Prince George’s County will get the funding that we rightfully deserve from the federal government to adequately recover from this crisis. It’s also the only way we will get the federal funding we rightfully deserve for our schools, our infrastructure, our seniors, and so much more over the next 10 years to continue moving our County forward. 

I know Prince George’s County and I know the people who live here. Over the last few weeks, I’ve seen what I’ve known to be true my entire life, that Prince Georgians are capable of great things. Filling out the Census is just another small way to show our compassion and commitment to this community that we are proud to call home.

I’m asking all Prince Georgians to help us get a complete count by filling out your Census today, online or by phone. Just visit my2020Census.gov or call 844-330-2020to get started. I know that by working together, we can show our region, State and nation that Prince Georgians are “Prince George’s Proud” and “Proud to be Counted” in the 2020 Census.

Yours in service,

Angela Alsobrooks

Prince George’s County Executive
