As post-pandemic realities continued to impact governments, businesses, and communities, Illinois Extension's Local Government Education program focused its outreach on economic investment and community vitality, workforce development, leadership, policy, equity, and resiliency. Our programs aim to help communities build capacity for innovative and informed decision-making to enhance quality of life for residents.
