Carbondale At Risk of Losing Funds Due to 46% Census Response

CARBONDALE – The City of Carbondale is at risk of losing millions in federal dollars to fund public services including transportation, education, social service programs, and city improvement projects such as road construction.

According to a city press release, as of Aug. 17, only 46.2 percent of households in Carbondale had responded to the 2020 Census survey. The city urged residents to respond before Sept. 30, in order to continue providing essential services for the community.

For every resident that fails to respond, Carbondale will lose approximately $1,600 per person per year for the next ten years

Every MondayWednesday, and Friday, the US Census Bureau will be in Carbondale at various locations assisting residents with the census survey. Dates, times, and locations will be announced weekly on the City of Carbondale Government Facebook and Twitter pages.
