Pioneer Valley Planning Commission is organizing a two-county Complete Count
initiative to bolster both federal U.S. Census and statewide efforts led by the Secretary of
State to count all residents in Hampden and Hampshire counties for the 2020 Census.
The campaign will engage local communities and community-serving organizations to
identify, inform and motivate residents (citizens and non-citizens residing in the region) to
participate in the effort to accurately count all those living in the region. Population
counts impact federal funding, political representation and allocation of public resources
that are vital for the economic and social health of the region.
