The 2020 Census will determine how over $700 billion in federal funds are allocated each year, and how congressional districts are apportioned.
To maximize the collective voice of the Armenian American community and secure vital funding for community services, we have to aim for a #HyeCount

The Armenian-American community has been historically undercounted in the Census. While it is estimated that over 1.5 million Armenian-Americans reside in the United States, the Census records fewer than 500,000.
A complete count of the Armenian-American community will ensure that tens of millions of dollars in federal funding are spent on services in the Armenian-American community, including school program funding, hospitals and clinics, aged care services, employment services, and language services.
