SALISBURY – Officials in Wicomico County voted this week to accept grant funding to improve community involvement in the 2020 Census.
On Tuesday, the Wicomico County Council approved a request to accept $20,000 from the Maryland Department of Planning for activities conducted by the Wicomico County Count Committee.
Planning, Zoning and Community Development Director Lori Carter told the council the funds would be used to increase participation in the 2020 Census.
“I’m here asking the council to favor us in being able to accept the award of $20,000 to help us with our Census 2020 operations for this year,” she said.
Carter explained most of the funding would be used to promote the 2020 Census in the media.
