Every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau conducts a headcount of every person residing in the nation. The next census occurs in 2020 and will determine the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives and how $675 billion dollars are distributed to local communities. A successful census depends on strong community engagement and participation. Part of that effort are Complete Count Committees.
Complete Count Committees (CCC) are made up of a broad spectrum of leaders that are trusted voices within their communities. They organize, plan, and implement a localized campaign to promote participation in the 2020 Census. Some counties and cities have already started their initial planning, working collaboratively with the Community Planning Association of Southwestern Idaho (COMPASS).
Currently, Partnerships Specialists have been active throughout our region meeting with local governments, elected officials, and community-based organizations. They are available to provide information about the 2020 Census and training on how to form a complete count committee, providing technical guidance on upcoming census operational activities.

Volunteers Needed in Boise Area?
BB Involved stems from Boise Brewing’s original idea of “Community Supported Beer” or CSB. There will be a handle in the taproom designated for CSB batches where $1 of every pint sold will be donated to charity.
Volunteer Coordinators will work with one selected charitable organization per month to plan a volunteer event. The purpose of BB Involved is to support a nonprofit organization and give back to the community. BB Involved is a way to connect and give back without stressing brewery operations. It provides an opportunity for nonprofits to showcase their organization and receive extra help from volunteers.
