WHAT IS THE CENSUS?
The Census is a population count of every person living in the United States and five U.S. territories. It’s conducted every 10 years by the U.S. Census Bureau and it help determine how billions of dollars in federal funding is distributed to states and communities every year. The next Census will take place beginning in April 2020.
HOW DOES THE CENSUS IMPACT MY COMMUNITY?
Data from the 2020 Census will be used to determine your representation in Congress, as well as how funds are spent for roads, schools, hospitals, fire departments and more. It is very important that all residents be counted!
WHAT IS THE COMPLETE COUNT COMMITTEE?
The Complete Count Committee is a volunteer committee dedicated to informing residents about the importance of the upcoming 2020 United States Census. The Committee will meet on a monthly basis to determine the most effective ways to raise awareness, answer questions and encourage community members to respond to the 2020 Census.
