2020 Census Complete Count Committee

2020 Census Complete Count Committee

The Decennial (10-year) U.S. Census, mandated by the U.S. Constitution, provides for state, county and local funding. Approximately $675 billion in federal funding is distributed each year based on population counts. Additionally, the number of seats of the Illinois Congressional Delegation is determined by the 2020 Census results. The list of how the 2020 U.S. Census results are used is extensive. A successful count in the community leads to accurate political representation, federal dollars that help Elmhurst deliver high quality services, and data that helps Elmhurst continue to attract new development and businesses.

On October 7, 2019 the City Council unanimously approved creation of the 2020 Census Complete Count Committee which will serve from October 2019 through May 2020. This special advisory committee will be composed of City staff and representatives of community organizations partnering with the City to assist in reaching those identified as being part of a “hard to count population.” Members will meet on a monthly basis to discuss strategies for educating the public regarding the safety, ease, and importance of participating in the 2020 Census.
