Pa. Second Lady Giselle Fetterman To Make Stop In Allegheny Co. As Part Of Census Awareness Tour

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- Pennsylvania's second lady, Giselle Fetterman, will help lead a campaign to raise awareness of this year's Census Bureau count and encourage residents to respond to the census.

State officials said Monday that Fetterman will tour the state, making stops in Philadelphia and Centre, Erie, Allegheny, Lancaster and Luzerne counties over the next three months.

Her husband is Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, the former mayor of Braddock.

Meanwhile, 94 non-profit community organizations are working together to encourage their targeted communities to return census forms.

Gov. Tom Wolf's administration said Pennsylvania receives $26.8 billion annually for federally funded programs, based on the census that's about $2,000 per Pennsylvanian per year.
