The 2020 census still needs your participation

Have you been counted? The more complete and accurate the 2020 U.S. census can be, the more it will ensure appropriate levels of funding for services and programs for Alaska’s seniors. Census sources report that, so far, Alaska census response has been among the lowest in the country. The census is conducted only once every 10 years, so results from the data collected this year will determine federal funding levels through 2030.

Let’s be sure our population count is accurate and receives adequate funding for the next decade. Anyone can participate in the census by mail, phone or internet. To participate by phone, call 1-844-330-2020. You can also participate online at this link:
