Tribal Citizens Aim to Increase 2020 Census Count

Phoenix, AZ – Native Public Media and the National Congress of American Indians announced their Census 2020 joint campaign to help Tribes and tribal citizens increase their participation in the Census 2020 survey. Census 2020 Public Service Announcements are being heard on Native stations beginning with Alaska.

The Census occurs every 10 years and the data from it helps the federal and state governments, tribal governments, business, and communities make decisions. The data can help inform where tribal communities need funding for school lunches, Pell grants, new roads, or veterans and elderly services, to name a few. The 2020 Census will also provide a snapshot of U.S. populations and provide information such as where we live, how we are employed, and who we are.
