As part of our mission to provide people with the information that they need to know, CCJ is proud to introduce our newest resource: the Pennsylvania Agency Guide! This guide is intended to provide more information about agencies that could be involved in portions of our work. 

Agencies are part of the executive branch of the state government. They operate under the Governor, who appoints the Secretary of each agency and guides their work. Each agency has a specialty and is made up of experts in their respective fields. They write and enforce regulations, educate, perform public outreach, and more to help keep Pennsylvanians informed, safe, happy, and healthy.

However, which agencies are in charge of what can get confusing - sometimes multiple agencies can be involved in the same issue. Hopefully, this guide will help you to navigate our Executive Branch. Additionally, the tool provides contact information and links to important agency web pages. You can access the guide below!
