Nonprofits play a critical role in helping ensure a complete count in Arizona. Many households would not participate in the Census if they did not get encouragement from a trusted source. Community-based organizations are highly trusted sources of information. Therefore your encouragement and assistance to people who need it will truly make a difference.
Arizona has seen major growth over the last ten years, and we’re on track for more. The 2020 Census is our opportunity to ensure that every Arizonan in every corner of our state is included and that we maximize our opportunities for future growth.
--Governor Doug Ducey
