CHARLOTTE HALL, MD - Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) received a briefing this afternoon from the 2020 Census Complete Count Committees & Census Officials operating in Southern Maryland. Ensuring a fair and accurate Census is a priority for Congressman Hoyer and the Maryland Congressional Delegation. In October, Congressman Hoyer and Congressman Brown met with Census Bureau employees at their headquarters in Suitland. Legislation was also enacted in December to ensure the Census is fully funded.
"Ensuring an accurate 2020 Census is critically important to communities throughout the Fifth District, particularly those that have been historically undercounted," said Congressman Hoyer. "I appreciated our discussion today, and I am grateful for the hard work the Complete Count Committees are doing to raise awareness and coordinate between local governments and community organizations for the upcoming Census in Southern Maryland."
"The Census is critically important and determines how federal resources are allocated for public health, education and workforce training, and transportation for our communities," continued Congressman Hoyer. "We must work together throughout Maryland to ensure that everyone is counted. I look forward to continuing to work with Complete Count Committees throughout the Fifth District to ensure an accurate count."
