Connecting Counties and Residents During National County Government Month
Date Posted: Tuesday, April 02, 2019

April is National County Government Month (NCGM); an excellent opportunity to discuss how counties touch the lives of every Pennsylvanian. NCGM's 2019 theme is "Connecting the Unconnected," which focuses on how counties deliver "people-centered" services. 

NACo's refreshed Counties Matter campaign includes updated data to help explain the county role in key areas of everyday life, including infrastructure, justice and public safety, health, human services, public lands and other functions like elections, parks and record-keeping. NACo also has launched an enhanced version of the online interactive County Explorer tool. The new version includes hundreds of data points and printable profiles on every county, parish and borough in America. It's also been upgraded to navigate and use on tablets and mobile devices. 

Visit here for NACo's NCGM toolkit that includes prepared materials for use as proclamations and media releases, as well as iCivics and Counties Work materials. And, view NACo's Media Relations: A Guide for Counties booklet.
