TAX HOLIDAY


CENSUS

I know I have written about this several times. Today I read an item that clearly demonstrated how important a complete census is for a small city like South Miami. Our share of the 45% the County is receiving from the Federal government depends on the number of residents who completed the Census 10 years ago. Our future share of monies will depend on how many residents complete the Census this year. Here's how it was worded by Congresswoman Mucarsel-Powell:


REP. MUCARSEL-POWELL RELEASES NEW CONGRESSIONAL STAFF REPORT HIGHLIGHTING DIRE COSTS OF CENSUS UNDERCOUNT FOR FLORIDA’S 26TH DISTRICT

[The 26th district contains all of Monroe County

as well as a portion of south-west Miami-Dade County.]

“The importance of the Census to our community in South Florida cannot be overstated. Counting everyone in Florida’s 26th district means that we receive the federal funding we need to build roads, fund community health centers, schools, hospitals, foster care, public transit, and job programs. And the Census has taken a greater importance in light of the coronavirus pandemic that has ravaged our public health and economy. Our communities in South Florida are vulnerable to being undercounted in the Census – language, socio-economic factors, immigration status makes our community harder to count, but it can and must be done. Everyone living in Florida’s 26th district, no matter your immigration status, needs to be counted. You count, and your kids count. Let’s ensure that they have the resources they need to brighten their futures.”


What is true for District 26, is also true for South Miami. We are now 16th out of 34 cities in Miami-Dade County with only 59.5% of our population having submitted their forms. Please complete your Census forms right now—in the comfort of your own homes—by going online at https://my2020census.gov/, calling 844-330-2020, or filling out the forms you received in the mail. The 2020 Census has only 12 questions and does not ask about citizenship.
