The SDC network is gathering, organizing and sharing our best practices, activities and guidance on States’ and SDCs’ roles in the 2020 Census.
2020 Partnership, Complete Count Committees and Outreach
There are many opportunities to help promote and support the upcoming 2020 Census. Public citizens and government officials can work to spread awareness through complete count committees, schools and universities, Governor’s Commissions, faith-based institutions, and in many other capacities.
A Complete Count Committee (CCC) is a volunteer committee established by state and local governments and/or community leaders to increase awareness about the census and encourage residents of their communities to respond. The committees can include a diverse selection of community representatives from government, education, business, faith, and media organizations. CCCs are responsible for executing a strategy unique to challenges in their community.
