The Government Performance Project offered public officials an academic perspective on capacity building with practical applications. Originally, the GPP was designed to leave the most prevalent bodies of government-municipalities and townships-unaddressed owing to constraints on staffing, finances, and time. But these groups encompass critical- and numerous-governments. The U.S. Census Bureau identifies 35,937 municipality- and township-level government entities in the United States.1 These government entities are often the first point of access for citizens and are responsible for coordinating most of the public services with which citizens are familiar.
