County Government Works is an initiative to make the American public, who are beneficiaries of government services, and officials at other levels of government, who are partners in delivering those services, more knowledgeable and positive about the contributions of county government. County officials and NACo must tell the story about the effectiveness of county government and how County Government Works every day. This initiative has put in place the tools for county officials to use to ensure that the story is told well and told often.
NACo, together with iCivics, has created an online game, "Counties Work," to educate students, grades 6 through 12, about the important role and functions of county government by letting them run their own county. A curriculum and web quest has also been developed to assist teachers with preparing lessons on county government. View a brochure on Counties Work.
