  2. Drought Response Task Force

Welcome to! 

On behalf of the people of Illinois, welcome to the state’s Drought Response Task Force website. Here you will find information, tools and resources designed to minimize the harm caused by the prolonged drought still facing families across the state.

I encourage you to connect with my office, or one of our many partners in the response to this drought with your questions, ideas and concerns. I know that working together, we can bounce back from any challenge we encounter.
