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.
- 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.
Community influencers create localized messaging that resonates with the population in their area. They are trusted voices and are best suited to mobilize community resources in an efficient manner.
The U.S. Census Bureau provides assistance to local officials in their efforts to create Complete Count Committees. Visit the 2020 Census Complete Count Committee website
