You’re one of over 38,000 special district government entities who deliver essential services to communities in every corner of the 50 states. You play a vital role providing water and power, operating airports, seaports and transit systems, managing parks and waste, and so much more.

The Special Districts Program, imagined by AT&T and with Government Technology, is the first of its kind. It’s designed for and by special district leaders across the U.S., just like you. We’ve traveled the country connecting technology leaders through regional summits, providing them with a place to share innovation and best practices, and solve common problems.
