  1. I encourage every Natchitoches resident to complete the census. We need 100% participation. Allocation of money from both the Federal and State governments is made based on population for many, most, grants. We intend to pursue capital outlay money for our roads. If we would like to qualify for as much as possible, we need a complete compliance with the census.

    Also, landlords, please encourage your renters, including NSU students, to complete the census. It is based on place of residence as of April 15, 2020 (I think that’s right). Every physical address received a mailing from the US Census Bureau and it should be completed by whoever is residing there at this time.

    This is just one piece of the puzzle to provide for the needs in the parish, and I ask you for your participation. Thanks.
