ALBANY'S CENSUS 2020 COMPLETE COUNT COMMITTEE

The City of Albany Albany’s Complete Count Committee is chaired by Mayor Sheehan and is comprised of current and former local elected officials, City officials, community organizations, and educational institutions.


The more Albany residents that respond to the 2020 Census, the more federal funding the City may receive.  This money will help educate our youth, rebuild our roads and bridges, and attract additional investment to our region.  Census results determine how more than $675 billion in federal funding is shared across the nation for programs like Head Start, School Breakfast & Lunch Programs, and Housing Repair Grants, as well as how Congressional districts, school districts, and city wards are drawn, and how sales tax revenue is shared.


The City of Albany Census Complete Count Committee is aware of the concerns surrounding the Census process that are derived by a variety of factors, including distrust of federal government, unawareness of the importance of the Census, and the possible addition of a citizenship question that threatens to undermine participation and accuracy.  


The Committee will work tirelessly over the next sixteen months to communicate the importance of the Census to residents and help alleviate concerns surrounding the process, especially to those communities that are historically hard-to-reach and often undercounted.
