RESPOND to the United States CENSUS 2020

Town of Forest’s current self-response rate is 49.8%. Let’s make it 100% so we receive our fair share of funding!

3 Ways to Respond to the 2020 CensusThe 2020 Census is easy. The questions are simple….

1. Respond Online at

Most households received their invitation to respond to the 2020 Census between March 12–20. These official Census Bureau mailings will include detailed information and a Census ID for completing the census online. If you do not have an invitation to respond, simply indicate that you do not have a Census ID and then enter the address for which you are responding.

2. Respond by Phone at 844-330-2020; or 844-467-2020 (TDD)

Phone response hours of operation are from 7 am to 2 am EST, 7 days a week

3. Respond by Mail

Homes in areas that are less likely to respond online will receive a paper questionnaire (sometimes known as the census form) and all homes will receive a paper questionnaire if they do not first respond online or by phone.

Responses to census questions provide a snapshot of the nation. Census results affect your voice in government, how much funding your community receives, and how your community plans for the future.

When you fill out the census, you help:

Determine how many seats your state gets in Congress.

Inform how more than $675 billion in federal funding is distributed to states and communities each year.

Create jobs, provide housing, prepare for emergencies, and build schools, roads and hospitals.
