There's Still Time to Respond to the 2020 Census

September 16, 2020

Starting today at noon, Connecticut's Old State House, along with Lt. Governor Susan Bysiewicz, Secretary of the State Denise Merrill and more will host a three-part program to educate residents about the 2020 Census and the importance of a complete count. 

For more information about the programs, or to register, visit the CT Old State House Facebook page, here

Data collection for the 2020 Census wraps up at the end of this month, but there's still time to make sure you're counted. 

By taking 5 minutes to respond to the Census, you help ensure our community receives its fair share of funding for vital programs and services. Every person counted represents $2,900 in federal funding for roads, housing needs, Pell Grants, school lunches, first responders, healthcare and other programs. 

Census data is also used to determine political representation and will adjust or redraw our federal congressional and state legislative districts. 

It's easy to respond to the Census online, by phone, or by mail. Visit or call the numbers below to complete your Census:

You can also respond by mail. Learn how here.
