The DeKalb County Nonprofit Partnership (DCNP) is holding a community economic crisis meeting Thursday to discuss the lack of state funding.

The meeting will provide information about the Illinois budget crisis and how it is impacting local citizens. The DCNP’s goal is to get community members to interact with lawmakers to express their opinions on the budget impasse.

“There is no end in sight for the budget situation in Springfield,” said Dave Miller, executive director of the Family Service Agency, according to a DCNP news release. “The lack of funding is directly distressing families in DeKalb County and limiting the ability of human service organizations to carry out their vital work.”

The meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in the Legislative Center Gathertorium, 200 N. Main St., in Sycamore.

Contact Miller at 815-758-8616 or Anita Zurbrugg, program director of the DeKalb County Community Foundation, at 815-748-5383 for more information.
