This year’s census questionnaire is available via mail, internet, and telephone. The US Census Bureau expects to have the information regarding online and phone survey versions available sometime in mid-March. The ability for individuals experiencing homelessness to respond via mail, internet and telephone provides an opportunity for you to strategically coordinate the count in all your CoC member agencies.
Each community will have a US Census Partnership Specialist who will be contacting the Continuum of Care Lead Agency directly. If you have not been contacted already, expect the US Census Bureau to do so in the next few weeks. Please help the Census Bureau staff determine the locations of appropriate service locations. If necessary, please provide assistance with other outreach opportunities for complete and accurate count of all persons experiencing homelessness in every Florida community.
Please continue to educate and engage your local service providers to coordinate the count with the US Census Bureau. Utilize the information below to share the importance of completing this census survey with your clients.
