Federal money flows with the numbers

Programs and services can be hard enough to find in a rural area. The last thing any such area wants is to get undercounted in the federal census, and risk losing some of the services it has.

So the Siskiyou Community Resource Collaborative, which brings together five family resource centers, is emphasizing the census and the need to get an accurate count of people in Siskiyou County.

Michelle O'Gorman, Executive Director of the collaborative, visits with info on how the work is going, given that it's nearly two months behind schedule because of the pandemic.
