Text out the count!
We know many New Yorkers are concerned about their health and the economic impacts of the Coronavirus, and encourage you to call 311 with any questions or needs you have.
In this challenging time, we’re pleased to be able to let you know about something positive you can do for your community. The Census has officially launched and New Yorkers like you can complete the census online or on the phone from the safety of their own home.
As you may know, the more of us who fill out the census, the more federal funding we get for our communities. And this year it's easier than ever to fill out the census—you can fill it out in a few minutes online at my2020census.gov or over the phone at 844-330-2020.
You also can encourage your fellow New Yorkers to fill out the census by signing up here to participate in our upcoming citywide "Text Out The Count" campaign from Sunday, March 22 to Monday, March 23. Using our peer-to-peer texting tool, Hustle, you will be able to reach hundreds of New Yorkers within minutes with a text encouraging them to fill out the census and providing the link to the Census Bureau’s self-response website.
All you will need is either a phone, a laptop, or a tablet to participate. Sign up here and we will get you all set up to “Text Out The Count”!
