Blandin Foundation

See Census jobs here.

Census 2020 will have significant impacts on local communities in northern MN including political representation, federal funding allocation and community planning for schools and hospitals.

It’s important to the vitality of our communities that every person is counted.

Key to a successful Census are the hired workers who play a variety of roles before and after Census Day (April 1, 2020). These are good paying part-time jobs with benefits.
