Rep. Beatty urges Ohioans to complete census forms by Sept. 30 deadline
Congresswoman Joyce Beatty is urging people living in Ohio's third congressional district to complete their census forms by the September 30th deadline.
Beatty released a new report prepared by the House Committee on Oversight and Reform and Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties.
The report details that if there is just a one percent under count in the 2020 census, people living in the third district could lose $8.6 million dollars in federal funding for medicaid and foster care assistance programs.
Additionally, residents in the third district could lose $481,000 dollars in federal funding for schools that have a high proportion of low-income students, or the equivalent of all the textbooks that 1,923 students would need in a school year.
