Volunteer for Census 2020 @ Salt Lake County |  |  |

Census 2020 is everyone’s responsibility. Census 2020 is right around the corner; but before residents can receive a census form, they must first be counted. An accurate Census count is vital to ensure programs like SNAP, WIC, CHIP, Head Start, Medicaid, Section 8, and Foster Care, to name a few, receive adequate funding. In Salt Lake County, many people are living in low-visibility dwellings, such as converted garages or RVs, which could be missing from the Census bureau’s address list.

Volunteers are needed for community canvassing in targeted neighborhoods within Salt Lake County to help count low-visibility dwellings. Salt Lake County and Salt Lake City are working together to ensure the entire population of Salt Lake County are counted during Census 2020.

Attend one of the following two-hour volunteer trainings :

Wednesday, May 30th 6-8pm at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center Ballroom (1355 W 3100 S, West Valley City)

Saturday, June 2nd 2-4pm at the Columbus Community Center Auditorium (3495 S West Temple, Salt Lake City)

or Thursday, June 7th 10am-12pm at the Sorenson Unity Center Performance Theater (1383 S 900 W, Salt Lake City)

and commit to 4-5 hours canvassing your assigned neighborhood. This can be on Saturday, June 9th beginning at 9:00 am or on Saturday, June 16 beginning at 9:00 am.
