Orange County, Fla. — With roughly two weeks left to fill out the 2020 census, organizers in Orange County are making a push to help residents without internet access to get it done.
Even though this year makes it the first for the census to be available online, reports show that only 62 percent of people in the county have responded. Census Committee Division Manager Lavon Williams says federal CARES act relief for the county’s rental program, as well as other COVID aid has been driven by nearly 10 year old census data. He added that “When we under-count, we under-represent who we are.”
To make it easier, they have set up free internet kiosks at seven community centers across the county so people can quickly stop by and fill out their census surveys. The locations are listed below:
- East Orange Community Center- 12050 East Colonial Drive, Orlando, FL
- Hal P. Marston Community Center- 3933 W.D. Judge Drive, Orlando, FL
- Holden Heights Community Center- 1201 20th St., Orlando, FL
-John Bridges Community Center- 445 W. 13th St., Apopka, FL
- Maxey Community Center- 830 Klondike St., Winter Garden, FL
- Pine Hills Community Center- 6408 Jennings Road, Orlando, FL
-Taft Community Center- 9450 S. Orange Avenue, Orlando.
