State Improving Communication with Rural Residents

State officials are releasing new guidelines about the way state agencies communicate with rural residents in Illinois.

Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon said the online resources will help rural residents who often don't know about state programs and benefits.

The online guide is a searchable database listing programs by name, organization, category, or keyword. Residents, community leaders, and elected officials can access information about government programs and how they can help.

Programs range from those dealing with agriculture to business development and tourism.
