By now, most of you have received the Census envelope in the mail. On March 5, Mike Ranck, Chairman of Delaware County’s Complete Count Committee for the 2020 Census, made a case to Project W members for how important it is that everyone is counted. Information gathered from the census is used to determine how to distribute $675 billion in federal funds and grants for schools, hospitals, roads, public works and other programs. For every one (1) person not counted, Delaware County loses $20,000 in federal funding for the decade. Please take the time to complete the census, and to encourage other households to complete theirs as well.
