Census 2020: Stay at Home and Be Counted
Please take a few moments to complete the Census. Greenwich’s current self-response rate is 42.3%. Residents should have received a mailer by now with a code specific to their address. They can fill out the Census at https://my2020census.gov/.
Census responses are essential - results determine levels of federal funding and representation in Congress for the next decade. Participation by all residents will help ensure that Greenwich receives its share of federal funding, and is accurately represented in Congress and in Hartford.
