As mandated by the U.S. Constitution, our nation gets just one chance each decade to count its population. The U.S. Census counts every resident in the United States. It is mandated by Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution and takes place every 10 years. The information the Census collects helps to determine how more than $675 billion of federal funding is distributed to states and communities each year. Learn more: www.Census.Gov/2020Census
The 2020 Census provides an opportunity for everyone to be counted. The primary goal of the 2020 Census is to count everyone once, only once, and in the right place. The Complete Count Committees (CCC) program is key to creating awareness in communities all across the country. The CCCs utilize local knowledge, influence, and resources to educate communities and promote the census through locally based, targeted outreach efforts. CCCs provide a vehicle for coordinating and nurturing cooperative efforts between tribal, state, and local governments; communities; and the Census Bureau. CCCs help the Census Bureau get a complete count in 2020 through partnerships with local governments and community organizations.
