Our government agencies and partners have been working hard to serve our neighbors. We have compiled a list of COVID-19 responses and resources on this page, which will be updated on an ongoing basis. 

As the State of Illinois has issued a Stay At Home Order, we encourage everyone to stay home as much as possible. GPCC staff are workng from home at this time; please contact us via email for the fastest response. We are also checking voicemail.

We plan to share email updates on a weekly basis.
