About the Census:
Why is being counted important? Whether you are new to the community or a long-term resident,
a renter or a homeowner, a U.S. citizen or not, YOU are OUR neighbor, and together WE ALL COUNT!
Did you know that approximately $675 billion in federal funding is distributed to communities each year? If we do not register with the U.S. Census our city gets less in federal funding.
The $25 gift cards are sponsored by a Fort Pierce business owner, who wishes to remain anonymous.
