You Matter. Get Counted!

Every ten years, the United States conducts its Census with one big task in mind: to count every resident. Some members of our community may feel nervous about giving information about themselves and their families to the government. However, there are several key reasons to participate that benefit our community, which is why the Blue Mountain Complete Count Committee is encouraging people to complete the 2020 Census.

First, federal funds get distributed based on the information collected by the Census. These funds go to support our local human service organizations, schools, roads, hospitals, and more. Businesses and nonprofits also use census data to decide where to target growth, create jobs, and offer services. In addition, local governments like Columbia, Garfield, and Walla Walla Counties use the data for planning and safety. Residents can also use the data to support our community through neighborhood projects. Lastly, policymakers use the data to set legislative districts that determine how all of us are represented in Olympia and Washington, DC.

The census offers a unique opportunity to be counted and shape our community’s future. This opportunity comes once every ten years, so make sure you plan to get counted in 2020.

What is the BMCCC?

The Blue Mountain Complete Count Committee (BMCCC) has been established under the U.S. Census Bureau’s Complete Count Committee program and is key to creating awareness in Washington state’s Columbia, Garfield, and Walla Walla Counties.

  • 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.

A CCC is comprised of a broad spectrum of government and community leaders from education, business, healthcare, and other community organizations. These trusted voices develop and implement a 2020 Census awareness campaign based upon their knowledge of the local community to encourage a response.
