Public Service Announcements (PSAs) are an effective way to educate the public about the importance of the 2020 Census and why participation matters. These materials enable our partners and Congressional stakeholders to access produced PSAs or create their own using pre-approved messages and talking points.

Use of some of these PSAs are restricted to an expiration date and cannot be used after November 4, 2020. If you have placed a PSA somewhere online, it must be removed by that date. Finally, if the PSA you'd like to use is not available for download below, reach out to contact the office of Congressional Affairs by phone at 301-763-6100 or by email at cao@census.gov for an editable copy and full guidelines.
