How Can We Help?

The Institute can help you, your staff, and your elected officials in several ways. We develop our services in response to the needs of Virginia local governments.

We offer a full range of services, including

Inquiry Service (EBIS)

Find local government salaries and benefits quickly and easily 24/7.
