The Director determines funding for Municipalities eligible to receive state revenues for a fiscal year based on their estimated population established by the state demographer. If a Municipality believes its population estimate does not reflect its permanent resident population as of July 1, 2012, the Municipality has until April 1, 2013 to request an adjustment to the estimated population sent by the director. The communities can select either the housing unit method or the head count method to conduct the estimate. Municipalities with population less than 1,000 must use the head count census and those with population of greater than 1,000 may use either method.
(1) These communities either did not have an estimate from the State Demographer or had a population of less than 25. Therefore, DCRA considered their requests and made a determination.
