MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Macon-Bibb Mayor Robert Reichert encourages everyone to do the 2020 Census.
He held a press conference Thursday.
Reichert wants residents to complete the survey so that Macon-Bibb receives the appropriate amount of federal funding for programs. This includes:
- free and reduced lunches at schools
- public housing
“It’s really important that we get a complete count,” Reichert said. “There is absolutely no adverse effect to anyone for filling out the census and participating. No adverse effect, but it sure is a big benefit to us for a lot of different reasons.”
