Many of you probably got your Census "postcard" that actually comes in an envelope? Some of you may have not. With our current situation, we have cancelled all in person meetings, information sessions and 1:1 support to fill out the forms. We are exploring ways to provide virtual information sessions and will notify you when that becomes available. While we cannot meet in person, we will be available by appointment through videophone. To set up an appointment, you can email Jessalyn Akerman-Frank.
Jessalyn will respond to your email and set up an appointment that fits your schedule. She will assign one of the Census Crew members to videophone you. During this meeting the contractor will guide you through the application process and answer your questions. If VP is not an option for you, we can explore other alternatives such as text chat, Zoom, email or other suggestions you may have.
It is important to us that you feel supported. We are here for you.
To make an appointment, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Census Crew members are

Census 2020 Live Zoom Event
This one hour event will explain about the Census form that you got in the mail. It will explain how to fill out the form, or what number to call to fill out the form.Many are concerned about SCAMS. The Census does not ask for your SSN or Credit card. If you get something in the mail that asks for that, it is not the CENSUS.
