Thank you for your reply to the Home Improvement poll survey that we are conducting now. We will keep you and your family posted for further updates.

Shouldn't it be "on" instead?

Thanks.

Yes - 'on' or 'concerning' would work OK.

We'll keep you posted with further updates.

Better wording than that, because this was simply a reply and thank-you for having participated in a survey. The problem is that "keeping you posted" implies a possible, if not probably, series of updates (feedback) to be provided. That usually isn't what happens when simply participating in a survey.

We'll share survey results with you when they become available.
