A lot of people in Franklin County and Ohio have yet to complete the 2020 Census. The Census is important because for the next decade, higher responding states and communities will get their fair share of:
- Congressional representation,
- Medicaid and CHIP money to fund hospitals and doctors,
- Funding for transit and infrastructure,
- Money for education from pre-school to college to adult,
- Emergency food assistance,
- Grants for firefighters, and
- Pollution clean-up, and other federal money.
The good news is that Ohio has counted 92.4% of it’s citizens; the bad news is that may still leave a million people uncounted. Take the Census if you haven’t and encourage others to complete it as well.
