America's 3,069 county governments provide fundamental services for building healthy, safe and vibrant communities. Through the National Association of Counties, county governments engage federal policy makers on a range of issues like transportation, infrastructure, healthcare, public safety and public lands management. All of these issues are vital to our nation's quality of life and long-term prosperity.
Decisions made by the White House, Congress and federal courts have a major impact on our ability to lead our communities. That is why Federal Policies Matter to County Governments, and Why County Government Matters to America.
