Why Return the Census?
Without accurate numbers, the Town will lose out on state aide for our schools, Chapter 90 funding to help improve our roads and highways, and support for many other essential services from our state and federal government.
Individuals who do not respond to the census may deprive themselves the proof of residency required for aid when applying for a state college, or veterans may lose their eligibility for the “Welcome Home” bonus, which they have so valiantly earned.
Every household, apartment unit, and condominium should respond to the census. The information obtained in this office will not be forwarded to any other town department and will have no adverse consequence upon landlords or tenants alike.
