NARCOG Promotes Local Government Participation in 2020 Census

The nation is preparing for the 2020 Census.  Federal funding, Congressional representation, and community, regional and state planning, along with many other activities depend on accurate Census data.  The cities, towns and counties in the North Central Alabama region can rely upon NARCOG for assistance through the Census process.

In preparation for the 2020 Census, local communities and counties have one chance to update their local address data.  The process called Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA) ensures that accurate, up-to-date addresses and enumeration are used to distribute Census forms.  NARCOG is currently working to ensure that all communities and counties within our region are registered to participate in this important step in preparation for the 2020 Census.  The LUCA registration deadline is January 30, 2018.

NARCOG Planning and Economic Development team members will attend Alabama State Data Center workshops on January 19th and 23rd to learn more about the 2020 Census LUCA.  Please contact Joey Hester or Shelby Selman for more information about the LUCA process.
