MontcoPA Counts complete count committee (CCC)
Who We Are
Our MontoPA Counts Census 2020 Complete Count Committee is made up of a variety of trusted community leaders from education, business, healthcare, and other public and private sectors and organizations. We are working hard to build awareness and recruit and train Census Champions to spread the word in several languages about Census 2020 through our networks. A critical focus of our CCC is outreach to hard-to-count groups such as foreign-born residents, those with limited English proficiency, children under five years of age, low-income residents, minority populations, homeless populations, college students, and those with low literacy.
Our CCC is led by Valerie A. Arkoosh, MD, MPH, Chair, Montgomery County Board of Commissioners and four co-chairs, who collaborate with nine subcommittees. The subcommittees work with volunteers to reach all communities and demographics in Montgomery County. The CCC holds regular strategic planning meetings, which includes identifying funding sources to help support our efforts to maximize Census participation and outcomes.

With just a 5% undercount in 2020, we could potentially lose $72,336,780 in funding for Montgomery County for critical services like Medicaid, SNAP, head start programs, housing vouchers, highway planning, and construction, and much more.
