Tompkins County Census Workers Needed!

Census Workers Needed! Spring and Summer

Tompkins County is still very much in need of hiring more census workers.  Hours are flexible and pay in this county is now $20 instead of $18.  Census-worker income will not affect SNAP, HEAP or TANF benefits.

Remember that the 2020 Census will affect redistricting within the state, how many US congressional representatives the state gets, and a lot of the federal and state funding that comes to the county.  So it is very important that everyone who resides in the county is counted!

One note:  When you apply online it is important to wait for a response from the system which might be as long as 10 minutes at times – this issue might have improved but it is important to be patient.
