CARSON CITY – COVID-19 continues to have an impact on the country and our local communities.
The national census effort continues, and Nevadans can complete information online or by phone: online (www.census.nv.gov), via phone (844-330-2020; for Spanish 844-468-2020), or mail in the hard copy questionnaire.
“The federal funding Nevada gets based on a complete count – more than $67 billion over ten years – affects all of us in our daily lives,” Kerry Durmick, Nevada Census 2020 Statewide Coordinator said. “Things like Medicaid, Medicare, nutrition and transportation services for seniors, the federal Pell Grant program, career and technical education grants, and highway construction funds benefit all Nevadans.”
If you are a resident who does not receive mail, does not have access to a computer or wi-fi at your home, or needs help filling out the questionnaire, you are encouraged to call the U.S. Census Bureau’s hotline to complete the questionnaire over the phone at 844-330-2020 (for Spanish call 844-468-2020).
