Matanuska-Susitna Borough

Last chance for funding

Mat-Su | Patty Sullivan | Tuesday, July 27, 2010

Friday is the last day for callers who feel they may have been overlooked in the census to complete their 2010 questionnaire quickly over the phone. Residents that believe they did not receive a form, who did not mail it back or have not been contacted by a census enumerator are urged to call 1-866-872-6868.

The July 30 deadline allows enough time for Census Bureau professionals to process the data and ensure that residents are counted in the right place and prepare the state population counts by the statutory deadline of Dec. 31, 2010.

The census numbers are used to determine the amount of Federal Funding the Borough is entitled to receive, so please if you have not yet been counted call the number above before Friday, help us ensure that the Matanuska-Susitna Borough gets its fair share.
