Census 2020

Montclair and Bloomfield are joining forces to form a Complete Count Campaign to ensure that the 2020 Census brings appropriate funding and resources to our communities. The Complete Count Committee will focus on those who are at risk for being significantly undercounted, including very young children, low income residents, people living in multigenerational housing, and others. Montclair and Bloomfield both have multiple census tracts that were undercounted in 2010. 

The 2020 Census, launching on March 12, is the key tool used by the federal government to determine Congressional representation and funding allocations of more than $675 billion in public services including roads, schools and transportation. Conducted once every 10 years, any population undercounts can impact a community for a full decade.
