Extension service reminds all to fill out census forms

By submitted, 05/14/20 1:46 PM

Do you have 10 minutes to spare?  If you figured your time was worth a $1.00 a minute, do you recall the last time you spent $10.00 and what you spent it on?  Was it a fast food meal, a car wash, groceries, a little gas for your vehicle?  Just 10 minutes is all it takes to fill out a United States 2020 Census and its value far exceeds $10.00.

The information gathered from the United States 2020 Census is used in grant applications.  Yes, those same Federal, State and Local grant applications that provide enhancements to your living conditions in your state and local communities.  The most reliable source of information concerning demographics is the United States Census.  That same information determines how many lawmakers are sent to Washington from your area to represent you in the U.S. House of Representatives.  The results will also show where communities need new schools, new clinics, new roads, and more services for families, older adults, and children. 

You matter, stand up and be counted today.  You can complete your United States 2020 Census by responding online at:  https://2020census.gov/en/ways-to-respond/responding-online.html or, by Phone:  844-330-2020.  You may respond in writing by filling out a Census Application that you may have received in your mailbox in April.  If you have not received an application in the mail, please consider responding via telephone or online at the above link.  Due to COVID-19 sending out applications through the mail were suspended.

Remember the United States Census Bureau will never ask you:

Your full Social Security number.

Your bank account or credit card numbers.

Anything on behalf of a political party.

Money or donations.

If someone asks those questions, they are fraudulently posing as someone they are not.  They are committing fraud.  Do not give them your social security number, your financial information, or your political preference.  The United States Census Bureau will never ask you those questions.
