Every 10 years the U.S. Census Bureau rolls out a survey to collect general data about residents in the country. A California state study has determined that the City of Camarillo is at risk of being undercounted. According to the Ventura County Community Foundation (VCCF), each uncounted person represents an estimated loss of $2,000 annually for 10 years, for a total of $20,000 per uncounted person over the next decade.
By ensuring a complete Census count, we will protect federal funding and Congressional representation in Ventura County. The City of Camarillo is working with the VCCF, city and county governments, nonprofit organizations and philanthropic foundations to assist with community outreach efforts.
The 2020 Census count will begin on April 1, 2020! Check out this informational presentation, given by U.S. Census Bureau Partnership Specialist Justine Fischer, at the February 26, 2020 Camarillo City Council Meeting.
