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 core local services to communities, such as public health, mosquito abatement, utility, wastewater treatment, fire protection, parks and recreation, healthcare, sanitation, ports, libraries, public cemeteries, and more.  Districts are established by voters and their funding is approved by voters to meet specific needs through focused service.  They can be specially molded to serve large regions or small neighborhoods depending on the need.
