2020 CensusMaryland: More Than a Population Count

Last Updated on Jun 18, 2020 at 9:11am | Garrett County Economic Development

The 2020 Census is more than a population count. It's an opportunity to shape Garrett County's future.
The Census helps determine how much each county receives in federal funding to:
  • Support emergency services such as hospitals and fire departments; 
  • Ensure families in your community have access to proper food and nutrition through programs like SNAP and WIC; and
  • Maintain and improve schools, transportation infrastructure, parks and playgrounds
Taking the Census today will have an impact on our county for the next ten years.
