The National Association of Counties is seeking applications for its Achievement Awards Program. The program seeks to recognize innovative county government programs that focus on initiatives such as offering new services to county residents or filling gaps in the availability of services; upgrading the working conditions or level of training for county employees; enhancing the level of citizen participation in government programs; and/or providing information that facilitates effective public policy making. Award categories include Criminal Justice and Public Safety for programs that improve public safety systems, justice systems, community crime prevention, and crisis intervention and Children and Youth programs that ensure children’s development through providing a continuum of supportive services including health and education.
