National Wellness Institute is excited to announce that they are partnering with the U.S. Census Bureau to support the 2020 Census. As a partner, NWI will be working to make sure our communities are accurately represented in the upcoming decennial count.

The census counts everyone in the United States. Census results are the basis for congressional representation and help determine how more than $675 billion in federal funds is distributed each year to support vital programs in states and communities across the country. These funds shape local health care, housing, education, transportation, employment, and public policy.

Your responses to the 2020 Census are safe, secure, and protected by federal law. Your answers can only be used to produce statistics. They cannot be used against you by any government agency or court in any way—not by the FBI, DHS, or ICE. Click here for more information on security measures taken by the U.S. Census Bureau.

As the 2020 Census approaches, we will continue to share information about how you can make sure your community is fully represented. Visit anytime to get the latest news.
