The 2020 Census is important to Vermont’s future Health & Wellness.
It’s simple, secure and ensures funding for Vermonters.
As we deal with the challenges of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, responding to the 2020 Census is more important than ever.
Funding for hospitals, health programs, first responders, and social services depends on every Vermonter completing the 2020 Census.
You can help Vermont ensure we receive our share of these essential services by taking the Census and getting the word out.
You can easily respond to the 2020 Census online using a desktop computer, laptop, smartphone, or tablet, and can also respond by phone or mail.
The Census is safe, confidential, and does not ask for citizenship status. It’s fast, easy, and for the first time ever, the Census is available online in over 50 languages.
It has never been easier to respond on your own, whether online, over the phone, or by mail—all without having to meet a census taker.
Please help us spread the word!

Please put a check by American Indian and fill in Nulhegan Abenaki Tribe.
For a sample of what the form looks like, scroll down.
Dear Nulhegan Citizens and citizens of other tribes,
This is Chief Don Stevens from the Nulhegan Abenaki Tribe. Every person living in Vermont shapes the future of our beautiful state by being counted in the 2020 Census. This is especially important for under-served and under-counted Native American populations.
The Decennial Census shapes how billions of Federal dollars are distributed to fund things like our roads and infrastructure, and the health and human services programs that make our communities a better places to live.
Responding to the census online, by phone, or mail is simple and safe. The form asks a few simple questions including name, age, gender, race, ethnicity, and relationship. Your answers are secure, and cannot by law, be shared with other governmental agencies.
So no matter what your tribal status or tribal affiliation, I urge you to respond to the 2020 Census and make sure your family is counted. Please do it for the sake of your children, grandchildren, and for your community! For more information about how to identify your tribal affiliation, please go to www.abenakitribe.com or contact your local US. Census Department.
Wliwni (thank you) for listening!
I have chosen to put this information here rather than on the Citizens Only page because many on you have not yet set up your password. It is incredibly important that you are counted as Nulhegan Abenaki in the census. It not only records that we are here, but it will be helpful when our tribe applies for grants. It is also detrimental for receiving funding for Title 7 for our schools.
The examples below are from the Census Form if you prefer to not download a copy. Note that Section 9 if for Person 1 in the census. Section 7 if for each additional person. They are all the same, they just have different numbers.
Please be sure to check the block by "American Indian" and then print your tribe's name in the blocks below in that same section. For example:
Chief Don Stevens
To help you to better understand the census form, the following is a link so that you can download a sample copy of the form. Please note that the Census Form clearly asks for tribal affiliation.
