County of Orange 2020 Census Complete Count Committee
The OC Complete Count Committee (OCCCC) will be the County’s primary network and strongest tool to educate, motivate and activate Orange County residents to participate in the Census. The OCCCC includes many stakeholders including cities, county departments, community-based organizations, community leaders and a communications team.
As you may be aware, the decennial census count is tied to many State and Federal funding formulas. This funding includes monies for essential programs such as Medi-Cal, Medicare, CalFresh, Housing Choice Vouchers, Highway Planning and Construction, education grants, lunch programs, Head Start and WIC among many others. The U.S. Census Bureau has identified populations and communities that are more likely to be undercounted, the goal of the OCCCC is to identify and implement the best strategies to educate and motivate these community members to participate.
