The Institute of Government and Public Affairs (IGPA) invites faculty and administrators within the University of Illinois System to our Faculty Coffee on our Research Scholars Initiatives. This is a hybrid event offered on Zoom and at IGPA’s Urbana Office at 1007 W. Nevada St. Urbana, IL 61801.
This Faculty Coffee will include a brief discussion on one of our current Research Scholar Initiatives by Professor David Merriman. Professor Merriman is Principal-Investigator on the Effects of COVID-19 and Work From Home on Local Government Revenue Initiative. The work being done on this initiative seeks to answer the question: How have changes in the work-force due to COVID-19 and shifts to work-from-home employment models impacted local government sales, property and other taxes and mass transit agencies’ revenues? This initiative seeks to provide data and methodologies that will help policymakers understand and react to the most significant change in the labor market in decades.
Professor Merriman is a co-leader of IGPA’s Fiscal and Economic Policy Working Group and is the James J. Stukel Presidential Professor of Public Administration at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
