SDLF is an independent, non-profit organization formed to promote good governance and best practices among California’s special districts through certification, accreditation, and other recognition programs.
Special districts are independent public agencies that deliver critical local services to communities, such as utility, wastewater treatment, fire protection, parks and recreation, healthcare, sanitation, mosquito abatement, ports, libraries, public cemeteries and more. Due to the specialized nature of their services, special districts must maintain their critical infrastructures and evolve with state-of-the-art tools of their trade – whether it be a new, more effective water delivery system, firefighting equipment, transit system, lighting, sanitation, or other service delivery.
