LEAP receives OCAC 2020 Census mini-grant

Posted February 07, 2020 in LEAP in the News

LEAP understands how the 2020 Census has a tremendous impact on our community and are excited to have received a mini-grant from the Ohio Census Advocacy Coalition to help provide technical assistance to complete the census and education.

According to the OCAC's awardee press release, "An accurate 2020 Census will be critical for Ohio. A mere 0.8 percentage change in population could mean the difference between Ohio keeping its Congressional seats or losing one or more seats in the U.S. House of Representatives. It could also have a significant effect on more than $33.5 billion of federal funding distributed to Ohio based on the Census count for important program." Read the full press release here.

We hope everyone participates in the census to ensure an accurate and complete count.
