As the nation's 100 largest urban counties move into the 21st century, the National Association of Counties' Large Urban County Caucus (LUCC), a bipartisan coalition of elected county executives, is prepared take advantage of new opportunities and address new challenges.
The information found on this Web site clearly defines LUCC's priorities, and elected leaders' needs and expectations for Congress and the Administration. We are proud of urban county leaders nationwide, whose invaluable vision has prepared urban counties for sustainable growth in the next decade.
Representing about 130 million people, LUCC elected leaders not only play a significant role in national policy because they represent nearly one in every two Americans, but also because of the broad range of services they must provide to their citizens. Therefore, LUCC's goal is to provide useful information to its 1,000 elected members as they search for pragmatic solutions to the challenges facing the nation's 100 largest urban counties.
This Web site was designed to serve as a catalyst to help LUCC elected members improve the quality of life for all of their residents. To achieve this, elected members can use this website as a guide as they identify urban challenges, provide input in developing national solutions and implement grassroots programs within their communities.
