How Can GIPAC Make a Difference for You!

The GIPAC fund is an important tool for the entire green industry, and it's needed now more than ever, as our industry is increasingly under attack by government regulators, policy makers and lawmakers.  

We must be able to support those who support us, so that our industry and the many small businesses throughout Illinois that make up our industry remain viable now and in the future.
