SS20 LogoCounties are making significant financial investments to address immediate public health and safety needs. At the same time, counties are experiencing massive and unprecedented declines in revenue as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Hear from state and local budget experts learn best practices for planning, budgeting, revenue forecasting, and strategies for how counties can best prepare for future fiscal uncertainties through the MACo Summer Series session “Back to Basics – Retooling Your Budget in Times of Crisis.”
