About The Lehigh Complete Count Committee: The Lehigh Complete Count Committee is a group of grassroots community members and organizations that care about the future of our community. Our area is the fastest-growing part of Lee County. We believe that increased Federal Funding can make a difference in the direction of our future and the future of our children.
How We Positively Impact Our Community: Our area is historically undercounted and underrepresented in Lee County by as much as 34% as seen in the 2010 Census. We cannot miss this opportunity to be counted, the federal census occurs just one time every 10 years. A direct increase in responses to the 2020 census means an increase in Federal Funding for our community that will increase our resources for disaster recovery, community infrastructure, and federal programs. There was an estimated $200 million in federal funding that our community did not receive, due to the Under Count in 2010.
About Census: The National Census does not share information with other agencies. The Census is by law a requirement and requests very basic information, including, name, sex, and ethnicity. These numbers provide funding and help determine the future actions of public transportation, public education, health care, law enforcement, economic development, and community planning/zoning. Census responses can be submitted online, by phone, or by mail.
