Local Government Fiscal and Stress Research

Yunji Kim, new Local Government Center Specialist, is a co-principal investigator of a research project titled, “State Policy and Local Fiscal Stress: Implications for Rural Government.” The research is supported by a three-year research grant from the USDA and will create the first 50-state assessment of local governments’ responses to the Great Recession and the role of state policy on local government fiscal stress. The research will contribute to theory and practical understanding of how local governments maintain infrastructure and service delivery while meeting the challenges of fiscal stress. 

In addition to presenting on this topic at the Association for Budgeting & Financial Management conference September 28-30 in Washington DC and at the International City/County Management Association conference in San Antonio October 22-25, Yunji will also be presenting Budgeting 101 at the Wisconsin Counties Association’s annual conference on September 26, 2017.
