Message from Center Director - Benoy Jacob

Benoy Jacob

Welcome to the Center for Local Government Research and Training’s website.  The mission of the Center is to “enhance the capacity of local governments.”  Recognizing, that local governments serve multiple purposes, such as: providing public goods and services, driving regional economic growth, and they providing ‘street level’ access to the broader American democratic system of governance, we approach capacity building in different ways.  Drawing on our expertise in public finance, public management, economic development, education policy, emergency management, and collaborative governance we provide timely and relevant support to local governments in the form of applied research, technical assistance, and professional development.     

As someone who has long been fascinated by local governments, I consider it a tremendous privilege to serve as the Center’s Director and to support Colorado’s local governments.  I invite you to learn more about the Center and to take advantage of all that we have to offer.
