HOPE – Local officials say that participating in the 2020 Census will help determine funding for public services in our community. “We need your help to get our friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers to participate in the 2020 Census to help better our future.”

To date in Hope, there is currently a rate of response of 43.4 percent and for Hempstead County the response rate is 39.4 percent.

Completing the 2020 Census is easy and takes an average of 10 minutes or less. You can complete the questionnaire by logging in to 2020census.gov, clicking respond, then clicking start questionnaire. You do not need a code to complete the 2020 census, just your current address.

Residents may also respond by calling as well: 1-844-330-2020 (English) and 1-844-468-2020 (Spanish).
