2020 Census – SHAPE YOUR FUTURE.
It starts with each of us doing our part. We do this is by completing the 2020 Census questionnaire. You can do it online or by phone. It is easy, safe and takes around 10 minutes to complete.
Completing the questionnaire allows you to influence the amount of money that comes to Vermont for many of our essential programs…programs that benefit our health and safety, that pay for our roads, for local government, for schools, for hospitals, and for so much more…
Instructions for Second Home Owners
Second home owners should know they must respond to the Census – once for each home they own. Please use the following instructions to complete the survey for each house that you own.
1. Go to 2020Census.gov and enter another form once you have completed the survey for your primary residence.
2. In the address location, where it *specifically* says, “Where were you living ON APRIL 1?” disregard that instruction about the date, and put in the seasonal/second home address.
If you have not completed your census yet, now is a great time. You can complete it without leaving home or coming in contact with another person. There are three simple ways to complete the Census:
1. Online: Go to www.2020census.gov. Can’t find your 12-digit code that you received in the mail? No problem just follow the instructions and you will still be able to complete the questionnaire on-line.
2. By Phone: Call 844-330-2020 to get started in English. The 2020 Census can be completed by phone in 14 different languages.
Greetings iBrattleboro people,
My name is David Longsmith with the 2020 Census here in Windham County. I’m now a Census Response Representative and my job is to assist members of our communities with responding to the census questionnaire.
With the US Census just around the corner, many people have questions as to who they should count on their census form. With 675 Billion dollars in federal aid programs on the line – the answer is – Everybody!
The US Census Bureau estimates that in 2010, more than 1,000,000 children were undercounted in the Census, and it is important that this does not happen again. School lunch programs, special education funds, and other benefits that flow to our communities are based on the numbers returned in the 2020 Census.
The 2020 Census is upon us and hiring NOW!
Beginning in 1790, and every 10 years since, we the people have participated in a process called the Decennial Census. We do this to know who we are and what we need for good roads, schools, hospitals and so much more.
