Ensuring Every New Yorker is Counted
The new council, co-chaired by Martin Luther King III, Lucy Liu and Lin-Manuel Miranda, will hold conferences to raise awareness about the Census and engage advocates, community organizations, community leaders and local officials.
The Council will act as the state’s coordinating arm to achieve a complete census count using the information learned from the state’s Complete Count Commission and support from state, local and foundation funding resources.
The Governor will also propose an additional $10 million in this year’s budget to ensure a complete count, bringing the state’s financial support up to $70 million for the 2020 Census.
