Join us for an informational session on the 2020 Census with United States Census Bureau employees Teresa Fletcher and Lisa Corsiglia.
Once a decade, America comes together to participate in the decennial census, creating national awareness of the census provides the basis for reapportioning Congressional seats, redistricting, and distributing billions of dollars in federal funding to support your state, county, and community's vital programs. In this session you will learn more about the Census, how to complete it safely and securely, and available job opportunities with the U.S. Census Bureau. U.S. Census Bureau officials will be on hand to answer any questions about the Census, including how to complete a job application, after the presentation.
The U.S. Census Bureau is currently hiring for the 2020 Census. The positions are full-time and part-time, temporary, with varying pay ranges. For Census Takers in Iowa, the pay starts at $15.00/hour.
By working for the Census Bureau, our community has a special opportunity to help make the 2020 Census an accurate and complete count. There are so many reasons our nation needs to be counted completely and accurately.
The count happens every 10 years with the decennial census, which influences how more than $675 billion from more than 100 federal programs are distributed to states and localities each year. Here’s some of what the census numbers effect:
- School lunch programs.
- Community development grants.
- Road and school construction.
- Medical services.
- Business locations.
This program is held in partnership with the United States Census Bureau.
