Coming Soon - the 2020 Federal Census


Starting in mid-March, residents across Franklin County will receive a letter asking them to complete the 2020 Census questionnaire online or by telephone (or later with a paper copy). It’s very important that everyone in Franklin County is counted. This data determines the distribution of billions of dollars of federal resources and defines our legislative districts for the next ten years. It is estimated that $2,372 per person in annual federal resources will be lost for every person not counted in the Census. If Franklin County is under counted by just 3% we could lose over $50 million in federal resources over a ten-year period.

Questionnaire Assistance Centers (QACs) are being designated to help anyone with questions about how to complete the Census and to provide internet access. Local libraries, senior centers and other locations are volunteering to be designated (QACs).
