CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — Chesterfield County recently received 20 Achievement Awards from the National Association of Counties (NACo). These awards recognize the ways that local governments are providing better, more innovative services to their residents, and strengthening communities across the country.
Started in 1970, NACo’s annual Achievement Award Program is designed to recognize innovative county government programs. Each nominee is judged on its own merits and not against other applications received. The awards are given in categories that reflect the vast, comprehensive services that counties provide. The categories include historic preservation, public information, community and economic development, criminal justice, county administration, financial management, environmental protection, information technology, health, libraries, civic engagement and many more.
“I would like to congratulate every department who received an award and who was nominated,” said Chesterfield County Administrator Dr. Joe Casey. “Through the course of the pandemic, Chesterfield Government’s workforce has been resilient in maintaining and improving the lives and experiences residents, businesses and visitors have in our county. These national accolades are a testament to the hard work each department contributes to Chesterfield, and I am very proud to see such dedication to our community being acknowledge by the National Association of Counties.”
The 2021 NACo award winners will be recognized at an upcoming Board of Supervisors meeting.
The 2021 award winners are:
Budget and Management
Communications and Media
Fire and EMS
Information Systems and Technology
Learning and Performance Center
Mental Health Support Services
