Acting on behalf of a local government, the WIRC can ensure that funding opportunities for local improvements are made known to local representatives. The WIRC staff can help a community and its local government to formulate a comprehensive plan unique to its own specific community development needs. These services, plus the assistance in the implementation of projects once funded, puts the WIRC Community Development staff in a full service capacity to communities.
Participation in WIRC membership is voluntary, and is open to any unit of local government within the western Illinois region. Membership may also be available to entities outside the six county WIRC service region. Contact the WIRC Community Development Department at (309) 837-3941 for more information.
