2020 Census is just around the corner

February 27, 2020 – News

It’s been a long winter, but the days are finally starting to feel longer. Spring is around the corner and, with it, new adventures. Also just around the corner is the 2020 Census. Starting March 12, you’ll be able to take the once-in-a-decade count online at 2020census.gov.

Mark the day in your planner, make an alert on your phone. Taking the census is just as important as signing up for the PFD. Taking the census ensures that Juneau receives its full share of federal funding for local programs and public services for the next 10 years.

Things like firefighting, housing assistance, free lunches in schools – these depend on federal resources that are allocated based on census data. Every Juneau resident counts, including you.
