With only 60.4% of Camden County counted in the 2020 Census, we could lose over an estimated $480 million in direct and indirect funding from the federal government over the next ten years.
The self-response period for the 2020 Census ends September 30, 2020! Each Georgia resident counted brings approximately $2,300 per year back to our community through both direct and indirect funding. Over the course of the next decade, this is over $23,000 per person.
Help Camden County get its share of the $675 billion in federal funding distributed annually based on Census data.
