Special District Map

The California Special Districts Association (CSDA) supports Districts Make the Difference and the efforts to raise understanding and awareness for the almost 2,000 special districts that serve California’s communities. CSDA, with support from CSDA Finance Corporation, and Special District Risk Management Authority, worked with California CAD Solutions to create an interactive map.

Find your special districts:
1. The map shows the state divided by county. Click on your county.
2. A list of special districts in the county will appear.

The list can be downloaded for additional sorting capabilities.
