The Census 2020 is here. Some of you have already received and responded to the census. If you get your mail delivered at a PO Box, a census worker will be bringing your census notice to your house. Home delivery of the Census 2020 notice will be delayed due to COVID-19. It is quick and easy, only 10 easy questions. You can fill it out online, on a paper copy or by phone. Let's make sure Grant County has a complete count to help get the funding we deserve.


Please call us if you have ideas or suggestions or if you would like to be involved in the Chamber of Commerce and our activities. We welcome your input.
