As businesses remain closed and unemployment continues to rise, a growing number of local organizations are turning to Washtenaw’s county government for help.


Today is the national reference point for the 2020 Census.  The national population count takes place every ten years, and this is the first in which most of the count is to be done online.  But, COVID-19 arrived and has muddied the process a bit.  Teresa Gillotti is director of the Washtenaw County Office of Community and Economic Development.  She joined WEMU's David Fair to discuss local Census efforts and potential impacts in this latest edition of  "Census 2020."


The 2020 Census is less than a month away, and there are still many things to consider.  Among them are properly completing a census form and how the final results will affect our community.  WEMU's David Fair explores this in detail with Washtenaw County Office of Community and Economic Development director Teresa Gillotti and Engage @ EMU student coordinator Denise Jimenez in this month's installment of "Census 2020."
