Citizen Input Requested for Hazard Mitigation Plan Update
Camden County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) is working to update the Camden County, Georgia Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan. The updated plan seeks to better protect the people and property of the county from the effects of natural and human caused hazards and to maintain eligibility for mitigation funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). As part of the plan update, citizens are requested to complete a public survey to provide input into the process.

Time Running Out to Complete the 2020 Census
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.

Census Takers began working in Camden County on August 11, 2020, as part of the U.S. Census Bureau’s Nonresponse Followup (NRFU). Camden County residents are strongly encouraged to cooperate with Census Takers and complete the 2020 Census for their household to ensure Camden County is correctly counted at the State and Federal levels.
