The Governor’s Hometown Awards (GHTA) program is now accepting applications for projects that made a meaningful impact on local quality of life from January 1, 2023, through December 31, 2023.

The program honors those who’ve gone above and beyond to enhance their communities. Townships, villages, cities, and counties with projects sponsored by a local government unit and supported by dedicated volunteers are encouraged to apply.

Winning projects in their respective categories will be awarded the Governor’s Certificate. Additionally, population division winners will earn an invitation to compete for the Governor’s Cup in Springfield this August.

Please visit the Illinois Department of Human Services website for more information about the program, including how to apply.
