U.S. Census Bureau

 

U.S. Census Bureau is conducting the 2017 Boundary & Annexation Survey (BAS).

The Tribal BAS allows the Census Bureau to correctly count your community’s residents and the federal government uses Census Bureau data to allocate more than $400 billion annually in federal funds for infrastructure, programs, and services.

You will not need to fill out the form:

If your tribe has no changes to report to the reservation or off-reservation trust land boundary that the Census Bureau has on file for them, please email Vbutterbredt@naihc.net or geobas@census.gov.

You will need to submit the survey, if your tribe meets any of the above criteria, please have the tribe fill out the annual response form online.

  1. A tribe has changes to the reservation or off-reservation trust land boundaries that the Census Bureau has on file for them
  2. A tribe has new reservation or off-reservation trust land to report
  • A tribe would like to view the boundaries that the Census Bureau has on file for their reservation and off-reservation trust land
