Why is the 2020 Census particularly important for Georgia? In the last 40 years the state because of its growth, has gained 3 electoral college votes. Georgia has received over $1,300 per person counted in the 2010 census and corresponding population estimates.

This webinar will focus on what you need to know and what opportunities are available to make sure the state receives a fair share of investments representative of its population.
