Miami-Dade County won the 2019 National Association of Counties (NACo) Achievement Award for the new in the category of Civic Education and Public Information. The award honors innovative, effective county government projects that strengthen services for residents.

This award comes on the heels of the redesigned, which launched in January.

''Counties implement innovative programs that enhance residents' quality of life every day. This year's Achievement Award-winning programs demonstrate how counties build healthy, safe and vibrant communities across America,'' NACo President Greg Cox said.

Nationally, NACo awards are given in 18 different categories that reflect the vast, comprehensive services counties provide. The categories include children and youth, criminal justice, county administration, information technology, health, civic engagement and many more.

Started in 1970, NACo's annual Achievement Awards program is designed to recognize county government innovations. Each nominee is judged on its own merits and not against other applications received.
