April is National County Government Month
National County Government Month (NCGM), held each April, is an annual celebration of county government. Since 1991, the National Association of Counties (NACo) has encouraged counties to actively promote the services and programs they offer. The COVID-19 pandemic brought to the forefront, and highlighted, the importance of county government. Since last year, counties throughout the nation have been on the frontline of protecting the nation's communities. Help tell the county story by sharing why "Counties Matter” throughout the month of April.
Counties can schedule activities any time during the month. NCGM is an excellent opportunity for your county to highlight effective county programs and raise public awareness and understanding about the various services provided to the community.
