2020 Census

Count the Region Challenge

Getting an accurate count during the 2020 Census is critical for our region’s success – think +$3.5B in funding and congressional representation decisions. That’s why Triangle J Council of Governments is launching a regionwide contest to see which county can get the highest response rate (% of people counted) by April 30th, 2020.

The winning county will have bragging rights, but also a few other honors to get competitive juices flowing including:

  • Picking the charity (regional) that will be the focus of the TJCOG Spring Charity Drive to help our region-wide community recover from COVID-19 impacts.
  • Showcasing county projects or efforts in TJCOG communications
