About Us

Township government is the oldest form of government continuing to function in North America. All townships in the State of Illinois are required by law to perform three functions:

  • General assistance
  • Property assessment
  • Road and bridge maintenance

What makes us “award-winning”? Here at DuPage Township, we have chosen to go beyond state mandated requirements to provide a variety of other services for our residents. These include:

  • Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)
  • Senior services
  • Senior and disabled transportation
  • Youth and family services
  • Food pantry
  • Notary public
  • Marriage licenses
  • Emergency assistance
  • Community resource database (C.O.M.P.A.S.S.)

We are also proud to provide a number of free programs:

  • Housing and Career Development
  • Credit Counseling

In addition, we are host to a satellite office of the Will County Clerk . Here residents of Will County can order certified copies of any document available through the Will County Clerk’s office such as:

  • Birth certificates
  • Death certificates
  • Marriage records

Will County Recorder Karen A. Stukel also has a full service satellite office here. Services provided include recording all documents, including subdivision and related plat documents, and military discharges. Copies can also be obtained from a wheelchair-accessible public search computer, or from our staff member. Of course, online public document access is always available at www.willcountyrecorder.com.

Our Joseph & Sarah Levy Senior Center not only is home to many of our activities and programs, but it is also a beautiful venue for wedding receptions, parties, showers, meetings, and other events, available for weekend rentals.

Adjoining the Levy Center is our stunning Roger C. Claar Enabling Garden. Featuring a charming gazebo, raised planters, and cobbled pathways, this stunning oasis is the perfect setting for an outdoor wedding or other special occasion, and is wheelchair-accessible.
