Census Bureau – Job Workshops in December

Census Day is coming up on April 1, 2020. Everyone living in the county must be counted, regardless of age or citizenship. The Census is extremely important to Loudoun County not only for determining representation for elected office but also how much funding the county receives for vital education, healthcare, transportation, and social services. Last year Loudoun received almost $31 million in federal funding based on the population data from the last census for programs including Head Start, Free & Reduced School Lunch, Healthcare, Affordable Housing, Road Projects, and SNAP (food stamps). Residents will be able to respond by phone (provided in 13 languages), mail, or online (provided in 13 languages).

The Census Bureau will be hiring more than 1,000 additional personnel in Loudoun County to help conduct the Census. Enumerator positions are compensated at $25 per hour, plus reimbursement for mileage, etc. If you are considering applying, you may be interested in one of four workshops in September on the 6th, 13th, 16th, and 23rd conducted by Loudoun County’s Workforce Resource Center. These sessions will offer instructions and tips on completing the 2020 Census employment application. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions relating to the application process. Attendance at the workshops is limited. To learn more and how to register please find the information here: https://interwapp14.loudoun.gov/wrcw/
