I AM YAKAMA AND I COUNT

 

 





Attention: Yakama Nation Tribal Members

WHAT
Decennial Census 2020 - The US Census Bureau is tasked with counting every person in the
United States every 10 years.

WHY
Billions of dollars in federal funding and resources are determined by the data collected in the
decennial census.

Many services such as Head Start, Housing and Workforce Investment provided by the
Yakama Nation depend upon federal resources and funding.

American Indian/Alaska Native communities have been historically under counted in the census
contributing to lower allocations of funding and resources for critical services.

Even with Tribal member participation there is still a risk for under count due to the ways the
various US Departments use census to identify tribal affiliation.

HOW
Complete the census questionnaire for everyone in your home (Online, paper or phone).

On the census form, List Person 1 as an Enrolled Tribal Member.

Mark only American Indian or Alaska Native & write in YAKAMA as the principle tribe.

WHEN
March 12, 2020 - Census Notices mailed to households & web portal goes live
(You can complete your census online!)

April 1, 2020 - CENSUS DAY
