State Complete Count Committee

Led by Lt. Governor Mike Cooney, the Montana Complete Count Committee (MTCCC) is panel of state leaders who represent the diverse communities, geographies and populations across our great state. Committee members work to increase the count by promoting and educating Montanans on the importance of the 2020 Census to our state’s elections, funding and future.


Montana Census & Economic Information Center (CEIC)

The Montana Census & Economic Information Center (CEIC) at the Department of Commerce oversees, coordinates and staffs the outreach for the 2020 Census. The CEIC will form partnerships, identify and provide resources, and develop an effective strategy to encourage Montanans to participate in the 2020 Census.
