2020 Census Complete Count Committee
The Village of Menomonee Falls established the Complete Count Committee (CCC) in 2018 to support the United States Census Bureau’s effort to count all of the Village’s residents in the 2020 decennial census. The aim of the committee is to engage the community to make sure that every person living in Menomonee Falls is counted. The CCC is spreading the word about the 2020 Census through messages in local publications, booths at community events, and outreach efforts for seniors and other hard to count populations.
The CCC includes representatives from both the Menomonee Falls and Hamilton school districts, the Menomonee Falls Public Library, the Community Center, and Tri County YMCA.
Why a Complete Count Matters
The 2020 Census is mandated in the US Constitution and the results are used for reapportionment of the US House of Representatives and for redistricting of state and federal legislative districts. The 2020 Census data will also guide the distribution of approximately $675 billion of federal funds and grants for schools, hospitals, roads, and public works projects. Locally,the data will be important for helping businesses, schools, and the Village make decisions about how to invest resources to most effectively serve the public.
