Census response prompts on-site registration

HVille202_HousingEvent-Doorhanger

Only 40.9 percent of Huntsville residents have responded to the 2020 Census as of July 22.

That means Census Takers will begin visiting nearly 60% of Huntsville-area homes starting in August! 

Want to avoid a knock on the door? Drop by the Huntsville Housing Authority office next week and be counted! 

Census staff will be onsite from 1-4 pm each afternoon to help area residents respond to the Census. Plus, all attendees get a free treat and each respondent will be entered to win a $20 gift card in a daily drawing.

This event is open to the public; mask and social distancing guidelines will be observed.

  • When:  1 to 4 pm daily, Mon., July 27 through Fri., July 31
  • Where: Huntsville Housing Authority Office front lobby; 724 Thomason St., Huntsville, Tx., 77320
  • What: Census staff will be onsite to help Huntsville-area residents respond to their 2020 Census
  • Daily Giveaways: Attendees get free a candy or ice cream treat and Census respondents are entered to win a $20 Gift Card, courtesy of Brookshire Brothers. Five $20 gift cards total; one drawing per day
  • Why: Encouraging Census self-response helps boost Huntsville’s response rate and reduce the number of Census takers going door-to-door starting in August.

Residents who can’t make the event are still encouraged to respond online at 2020Census.gov, via phone at 844-330-2020, or using their paper questionnaire.
