A message from Jill Brickman, Northfield Township Supervisor
Township government is the oldest existing form of government still in operation in the United States, having been established in the 17th century. However, that does not mean that we are dwelling in the past. As needs and forms of government have changed, so have we.
Currently, Northfield Township serves as a social safety net for residents in need. In addition to operating the award-winning Northfield Township Food Pantry, we provide other forms of direct assistance and referrals to human service agencies for our clients. Through emergency and general financial assistance, as well as in cooperation with the Community and Economic Development Association of Cook County (CEDA), the Township is able to provide help to residents who might otherwise have nowhere to turn.
Of course it’s impossible for a single organization to meet the varied needs in a community. We work closely with providers throughout the township to help our clients access the assistance they need. In addition, the Township provides funding to many of the agencies that support our residents.
Northfield Township performs many other important functions, including real estate assessment services and passport application acceptance. Please browse our website to learn more and as always, feel free to call us for information. We never forget that we’re in a service business.
