Communities want their local governments to take action on tough issues, sometimes even when a local government may not be the primary entity responsible. Learn about successful efforts by local governments to tackle gnarly issues like environmental challenges, opioids, and homelessness. Gain insights and approaches you can use to address the tough issues your agency faces.
What we'll cover:
1. What are difficult issues like environmental challenges, opioids, and homelessness facing local government?
2. What are innovative and effective ways in which local government agencies are making a difference?
3. What resources are available to help local governments successfully address their own tough issues?
