COVID-19 Response: Local Government Partnerships and Communications Early in the Pandemic

This brief examines the types of partnerships that developed and communications strategies that Indiana local governments adopted in the early months of the pandemic.

COVID-19 Response: Community Resiliency in the Hoosier State (Policy Brief Series) 

To better understand the varied effects of COVID-19 in communities throughout Indiana, a survey of local government officials was conducted by Accelerate Indiana Municipalities (AIM), the Association of Indiana Counties (AIC), and Ball State University researchers at the Bowen Center for Public Affairs, CBER, and Indiana Communities Institute.

The purpose of these policy briefs is to provide government policymakers and community decision-makers with more comprehensive and in-depth data on budgetary/fiscal stress, technology, administration, public health, and community health as decisions are made regarding resource allocation and policy development.
