2nd Annual Research and Practice in Progress Briefing on Local Government in New York: A Forum for Local Government Researchers, Practitioners and Policy Makers

Wednesday, November 16, 2016
10:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Local governments provide most of the public services New Yorkers depend on. Yet many of the state's local governments have been hard-pressed in recent years by weak economic growth, deteriorating roads and bridges, rising health care and pension costs, natural disasters, and growing demands for educational improvement. To better understand how we can improve the capacities of local governments to meet these challenges, the Rockefeller Institute invited an excellent group of researchers and practitioners to assess the challenges and opportunities facing local governments in New York.
