Critical funding needed for state, regional and local transportation infrastructure, housing, economic development, schools, healthcare services, public safety, emergency services and much more can be affected by the results of the U.S. Census. An undercount for Arizona can lead to inadequate federal funding for state, regional and local programs and services. Underfunded programs and services put more pressure on state and local governments, service providers and businesses to address the funding gaps for unmet needs.

An accurate state census count is important to ensure that:

  • Arizona has fair congressional representation
  • State, regional and local governments, businesses, schools, nonprofits and many other organizations have accurate and current data to make key funding and investment decisions that affect the quality of life for their citizens
  • Hundreds of billions of federal dollars are equitably allocated among states to support state, regional and local programs and services

The PAG Regional Council recognizes the significance of an accurate count for the region and local communities. PAG has formed a 2020 Census Coalition and is leading a regional awareness campaign. Coalition efforts are focused on mobilizing with community organizations and PAG member jurisdictions to prepare plans to engage with their respective stakeholders or constituents during a 100-day period, from approximately mid-March through June. During that time, organizations are encouraged to build awareness of the 2020 Census, motivate and encourage their audiences to self-respond by mobile phone, email or by mail.

To learn how you can become a Coalition member or get answers to questions about how your organization can mobilize for the 2020 Census, please contact Mary Carter, PAG Director of Partnerships and Development, at

In addition to providing Census training to cities and towns in eastern Pima County, PAG has formed a 2020 Census Coalition and is leading a regional awareness campaign. Our region is depending on this coalition to help make the campaign robust and effective in moving the needle. You can be a part of the coalition by committing your support.
