Great Barrington 2022 Annual Town Census
GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — The town urges all residents to "be counted" for the 2022 town census by returning a completed census form to Town Hall. Residents should have received a census form in their mail in mid-December.
State law mandates this annual street listing (town census) of residents as of Jan. 1 of each year.
Residents should return the form by mail, in person or at the Town Clerk's drop box outside Town Hall which is accessible 24/7. Anyone in need of assistance with the form is asked to contact the Town Clerk's Office, (413) 528-1619 ext. 2100. The form can also be scanned and emailed to email@example.com
Anyone who may have lost their form, or would like to obtain a new one, may contact Town Hall or visit the Town Clerk's page on the town website.
Town census information is used for the following purposes:
To assist public safety and emergency responders
To apply for grants
To assist the town and state in calculating state and federal aid
To update the town voter list (if you are a registered voter and do not respond to the census, you could be made inactive on the voting list)
To serve as proof of residency for residents who need to qualify for veteran's benefits, in-state tuition at state schools and other programs.
All residents, not just voters, should return the form each year.
