(Complete Count Committee)…They held their inaugural meeting in Imperial County.

The Imperial County 2020 Census Complete Count Committee held a kick-off meeting to begin a census awareness campaign for Imperial County. Although households will not begin to experience census activity until the end of 2019, the goal of the committee is to educate the public early to better understand the decennial census process. Representatives from more than two dozen organizations throughout the county attended the inaugural meeting. The County Board of Supervisors recently entered into an agreement with the California Census 2020 Complete Count Office to assist in promoting local participation in the denial census. Through that agreement, the County of Imperial is eligible to receive $284,434, contingent on the county achieving certain objectives, completing certain tasks, meeting deadlines, and adhering to specified contractual requirements. One of the requirements was to form the Complete Count Committee.
