2020 Census Compete Count Committee & Community Workshops
April 23 Open House: Please Join Mayor Young, Congressman Cummings and others for the Census 2020 Open House
Did you know that being counted brings over $16 billion a year to your City and State? Come out to the Census 2020 Open House, hosted by the Baltimore Complete Count Committee, at Poly High School on April 23rd, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm!
Every person not counted leaves $1,800 of funding on the table, and we need Baltimore to get its share. Over 50 State and Federal programs rely on Census data – from the School Breakfast and Lunch Programs, to Medicare and Medicaid – and we need your help to ensure the programs stay funded and that #bmorecounts.

Census 2020 Community September 2018 Workshop Review
On September 29, 2018, nearly 200 Baltimore residents participated in a public workshop where they learned more about Census 2020 and what is at stake for our City. Mayor Catherine E. Pugh was joined by former U.S. Senator Barbara Mikulski, U.S. Senator Ben Cardin and U.S. Census Bureau Staff to introduce Baltimore’s Census 2020 Complete Count Committee. Participants then broke into small groups to provide suggestions around strategies to better engage hard-to-count communities around Baltimore. For each person we fail to count, Baltimore is projected to lose $18,000 in federal funding. Lost federal funding adds up to diminished resources to provide services to seniors, children, small businesses, transit users and beyond. Working together, we can make sure that each Baltimore resident is counted so we can get our fair share of federal resources.
