In 2010, the U.S. Census Bureau will conduct a census as required by the United States Constitution. The census count is used for a variety of purposes including distributing over $300 billion in federal funds, drawing legislative districts, attracting new business to the region, and planning for government services.


The City of Elk Grove has, in partnership with the Census Bureau, established its 2010 Complete Count Committee to encourage community involvement and to generate excitement about the Census. The City of Elk Grove’s main goal is to ensure everyone is represented and counted.

Some of the primary goals of the Complete Count Committee are as follows:

* Actively recruit members of our community to help coordinate and implement outreach efforts aimed at ensuring an accurate census count for the City of Elk Grove.

* Educate the community about the importance of participating in the census and to reassure residents that information provided to the Census Bureau will remain confidential.

* Work in partnership with the Census Bureau and the City staff to ensure that all available resources are utilized in order to ensure a successful census count in 2010.
