Census LUCA Workshops

The U.S. Census Bureau is offering LUCA (Local Update of Census Addresses) 2020 Workshops for Vermont cities and towns, in partnership with the Vermont State Data Center and the Vermont Center for Geographic Information. For your convenience, workshops will be hosted at multiple sites.


Why participate in LUCA?

  • To help ensure an accurate decennial census count in your community.
  • To help the federal government distribute more than $400 billion in funds annually for infrastructure, programs, and services.
  • To help your community plan for future needs.


During the LUCA 2020 Workshop, the U.S. Census Bureau will review the three options available for LUCA participation. It will discuss the free software tool available (GUPS) to review and update the census address list. This workshop will show municipalities how to prepare, register, and participate in this important program for their communities. The demonstration will provide examples of resources to help your city or town get an early start on LUCA 2020.
