Mayor Martin J. Walsh today announced the City of Boston’s Complete Count Committee, a group of cross-sector leaders that will work to ensure that all Boston residents are aware of the upcoming 2020 U.S. Census, know why it’s important, and are prepared to participate. Census day is April 1, 2020, starting the decennial count that determines everything from representation in Congress, to federal funds for schools, affordable housing, infrastructure and health care programs.


“We want to ensure all Bostonians are counted, because all Bostonians count,” said Mayor Walsh. “Members of our Complete Count Committee have the expertise and knowledge in their fields, and are trusted voices in the community. Their leadership will play a vital role in our outreach efforts, and we’re confident that they will help us organize and mobilize Bostonians to ensure an equitable and accurate count.”
