Simon announces online resources: Illinois state officials are releasing an updated guide to state services that targets residents in rural areas.

Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon says the online resources will help rural residents who often don’t know about state programs that answer their needs.

Simon is a Carbondale Democrat and chairwoman of the Governor’s Rural Affairs Council. The council and the Illinois Institute for Rural Affairs spent the past year compiling a list of state programs and services that are relevant to rural areas.

The online guide is a searchable database listing programs by name, organization, category or keyword.

Residents can access information about government programs and how they can help.
