The headwaters of the Columbia River.

Dear Tribal Members:

Great Developments, happening with the Census 2020 Campaign. And what you need to know.  Everyone counts, it’s about $675 billion, it’s in the constitution, it’s about fair representation, it’s about redistricting, so we need to take part it’s our civic duty.  They have already opened 40 census offices, and will open remaining 208 area census offices.

$675 billion, if we do not get counted it costs us $3,000.00 per person, and these funds go toward Public Indian Housing, Employment and Training, Medical Assistance, Health Care Centers, Education, transportation, just to name a few.  So we need to be counted for these funds.

Your responses are safe and secure, they are protected by law to protect and personal information collected.  We can also respond on line, which is very helpful.

Census takers are needed, great pay $15 to $20 dollars per hour, flexible hours, weekly pay, and paid training.  And what is great is if you are living in a HUD home or receiving Tanf this will not be counted as income.  Apply online to 2020 census.gov/jobs

There are going to be real efforts to count everyone, the difficult to find tribal members.

We will have the Tribune publish lots of information as time goes.

I am also on a committee for the Transboundary Columbia River project.  This includes Canadian and American Indians addressing the issues of the river.  I am attaching a picture of the beginning of the Columbia River, which is a marshy area and a small spring bubbling at Canal flats in Canada. 

April 1, 2020 is Census day.
