National County Government Month (NCGM), held each April, is an annual celebration of county government. Since 1991, the National Association of Counties has encouraged counties to actively promote the services and programs they offer. 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.

NCGM’s 2019 theme is “Connecting the Unconnected,” which is consistent with NACo President Greg Cox’s initiative and focuses on how counties deliver “people-centered” services to their residents. Read about the initiative here and download NCGM resources below for more information and ideas for how your county can participate in NCGM.
