Recently, York City Mayor Michael Helfrich and the York County Commissioners issued proclamations announcing their cooperation with the U.S. Census Bureau to ensure an accurate count for the city and county. As part of this mission, the City of York, and the County of York, have partnered to create a Complete Count Committee (CCC) – a volunteer committee organized by state, county, and local governments, as well as community leaders to increase awareness about the upcoming Census and to motivate residents to respond.
As done in previous decennial Censuses, York City and York County are collaborating by engaging school districts, faith-based organizations, businesses/associations, and community organizations to effectively use the trusted voices in our community to share the information and spread the word about the 2020 Census. Over $675 billion are distributed based on the Census count. Pennsylvania received $39,179,047,733 through Federal spending programs guided by data from the 2010 Census. It is estimated that York City and York County could lose up to $2,000 of Federal funding for each person not counted, or more than $20,000 per person every ten years.
The U.S. Census Bureau is hiring 1,500 workers in York County in preparation of the 2020 Census. Positions pay $19/hour and 58 cents per mile of travel. Flexible hours and training are available.
