The amount of New Jersey’s federal funding related to our COVID recovery depends on the completeness of our Census count. It’s that important. It’s not too late to respond to the 2020 Census while being safe and practicing social distancing at home.
Here’s how the call program works – You call at least five (5) friends, neighbors or family members to check and see how they are doing. Then also ask if they’ve had a chance to fill out their Census. If they haven’t, we’ve provided info so that you can tell them why it’s so important. Then ask those who said yes to call 5 of their friends and family members - And so on, and so on.
As a friend, neighbor, or relative you’re a trusted voice. And there is no one more effective than you to ask those you know to fill out their Census. We are asking as many folks as possible to participate in our Friends and Family Outreach call program. It’s simple to do and you can do it from the comfort of your own home. Everything you need is provided right here to start making calls, including a call script in Spanish: https://nj.gov/state/census-outreach.shtml
