The Census, which is completed every 10 years and mandated by the US Constitution, helps to determine funding for hospitals, schools, transportation, grants and other important projects. In Coffee County, it is estimated that for every person who is not counted, we will miss out on about $11,000 in federal funding that will not go toward local projects. This money will instead need to be accounted for through local tax revenues.
