A Thriving Community

Champaign-Urbana is a remarkable place to call home. We’re a friendly, vibrant Midwestern community located in the heart of the Midwest. We’re centrally located between Chicago, Indianapolis and St. Louis- the perfect distance for a day trip.

With three interstates intersecting in Champaign–Urbana, an Amtrak station, an award-winning Mass Transit System, and Willard Airport- getting around is easy. Our future is bright: Champaign County is investing over $40M in American Rescue Plan funds into expanding broadband access, quality-of-life-centered infrastructure projects, and social programs that strengthen our community.
