The 2020 Census is a top priority for the Borough President and the people of Queens. The response rate will determine how much federal funding we receive and how much representation we will have in the U.S. House of Representatives for the next ten years.
Queens is the most diverse county in the United States, and this is a source of pride. But our diversity also poses unique challenges when it comes to ensuring that every Queens resident is counted in the decennial Census. In the current political climate, many immigrants are afraid to share personal information with the government. And given the ongoing impacts of racial discrimination, African American communities have been among the most undercounted populations in New York City.
The Borough President’s Complete Count Committee (Queens CCC) is a diverse network of trusted community partners committed to ensuring that everyone in Queens is counted in the 2020 Census. They meet on a monthly basis for trainings, strategy sessions, and information exchanges.
The Queens CCC members also volunteer at outreach events, host Census job fairs, and hold events to promote the 2020 Census in hard-to-count communities. This is an exciting collaboration that accepts new members on an ongoing basis if they meet two simple criteria: prior community involvement and availability to participate.

The United States Census Bureau is currently conducting its decennial count of every resident living in the United States, as mandated by the U.S. Constitution.
Taking part in the Census not only helps ensure our borough will receive its fair share in federal funding and representation, it is also our civic duty.
