HOLLYWOOD–Horizon 180’s Paul Chaderjian speaks with ANCensus2010.org spokeswoman Tamar Yardemian Baboujian on the project and opportunities for community groups to get involved in ensuring an accurate count in the 2010 Census.
The ANC-WR Census 2010 campaign efforts are supported in part by a grant from the California Community Foundation. The grant will assist the ANC-WR to conduct an aggressive community outreach campaign for the 2010 Census. The goals of the ANCensus 2010 project include maximizing Armenian American participation in the 2010 headcount and informing the community to indicate Armenian as their race on the questionnaire.
The outreach campaign also allows for re-granting opportunities to Armenian American nonprofit organizations. The ANC-WR will distribute grants in the coming months to those Armenian American organizations that are willing to conduct Census outreach work. Organizations must submit proposal applications by Friday, February 5, 2010. For more information on re-granting opportunities, visit ANCensus2010.org or call the ANCensus 2010 Hotline at (888) 666-4761.
