BOISE, Idaho — The State Complete Count Committee formed by Governor Brad Little last year to assist federal partners in completing the 2020 Census Count will meet February 13 in Boise.

The meeting will be held 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Idaho Association of Counties Policy Office, located at 700 W. Washington in Boise, one block behind the Capitol.

A meeting agenda and information about the committee can be found here.

Secretary of State Lawerence Denney and former state legislator Wendy Jaquet co-chair the committee. The U.S. Census Bureau conducts a population count every 10 years.

Census results help determine the allocation of federal funds and electoral redistricting, and they help inform business and policymaking decisions at all levels. American households will receive an invitation to participate by April of 2020.
