Free Local Update Of Census Addresses (LUCA) Workshop - 11/8 - Helena And Webinar

October 27, 2017View for printing

Montana receives $1,989 per person annually from federal assistance programs that distribute funds based on Decennial Census. Montana can lose $19,890 over 10 years for each person that is not counted in Census 2020!

The first step to getting everyone counted in Montana is knowing where all living quarters are located. If an address is not included in U.S. Census Bureau's residential address list a Census 2020 form will not be delivered and the people will miss being counted. The Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA) is our only opportunity to review and comment on the U.S. Census Bureau's residential address list prior to the 2020 Census.

LUCA invitation letters and registration forms were recently mailed to all Highest Elected Officials (HEOs) and Tribal Chairpersons (TCs) across Montana and the deadline to enroll is December 15, 2017. If you have not received your invitation letter or have questions please contact me. A LUCA participants map is available that shows everyone registered for LUCA in Montana.

Please join us for a free LUCA training workshop on Wednesday, November 8th 10:00-1:30. The workshop will provide training on how to complete LUCA by paper, using Geographic Update Partnership Software (GUPS) or in a GIS. The workshop will be at our office in Helena but you can also register to join by webinar.

TIME: 10:00am to 1:30pm

LOCATION: Census & Economic Information Center, 301 S Park Ave, Helena, Room 504 or by Webinar
