Maryland Complete Count Committee

​With the 2020 census nearing, the 2020 Maryland Complete Count Committee (CCC) helps the state prepare and mobilize for the 2020 decennial census. The Maryland CCC includes nonprofit leaders, elected officials, state agency heads, and county and municipal government representatives. 

Governor Hogan signed Executive Order 01.01.2019.03 in February 2019 directing the Maryland CCC to assist the state in achieving a full and accurate count in the 2020 decennial census. The CCC will develop and implement an outreach plan to build partnerships and coordinate with local governments and other organizations throughout Maryland. 

The Maryland Department of Planning, as the Governor’s liaison to the U.S. Census Bureau, will work closely with the CCC on administrative, staffing, and budgetary purposes.
