Franklin County Columbus Counts: 2020 Census Grants Application

February 14th, 2020

The Franklin County Board of Commissioners is providing funding to support local, community-based organizations in getting out the 2020 Census count in Columbus and Franklin County. The Commissioners’goal is to ensure every resident in Franklin County is counted, especially individuals from traditionally hard-to-count (HTC) communities.

This funding will be distributed to local community-based organizations in Franklin County through a mini-grant process for the purpose of reaching traditionally HTC communities. Each local organization will receive a grant to implement Census activities that educate and organize their HTC communities around the Census.
