JacobsWelcome2014Dear Friends,

Thank you for visiting my legislative website.  It is my honor to serve the citizens of the 36th Senate District in the Illinois General Assembly.  On this website, you can learn a little bit about me, my record in the General Assembly, and the services I can provide you.

Right now, my top priorities are bringing more jobs to to our area, increasing economic development in the region, finding a responsible budget solution, and putting an end to business as usual in Springfield.  I am most proud of the projects that have come to the 36th District including the expansions of Western Illinois University, the Northeast Sports Complex in East Moline, and the expansion of Douglas Park in the City of Rock Island.

I always welcome feedback from my constituents, so if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas, please do not hesitate to contact me.   


Mike Jacobs
36th Legislative District


firefightersI’m happy to announce the Illinois State Fire Marshall has now begun accepting applications for the 2015 Small Equipment Grant.  

The purpose of this program is to provide grants directly to fire departments, fire protection districts or township fire departments. Our hope is this grant will assist public fire entities in securing equipment they otherwise could not afford.  

For more information about the grant opportunity or to fill out the application, click here.

To be considered for this grant opportunity please be sure your application is postmarked no later than September 30, 2014.


The Whiteside County Senior Center was buzzing with activity on Monday during an event co-sponsored by the center and State Senator Mike Jacobs (D-Moline). From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Whiteside County Senior center hosted vendors from the area in addition to statewide vendors, all aimed at assisting area senior citizens.

“Events like these are truly great opportunities for people to learn about the services they may be missing out on,” Senator Jacobs said. “Often times, many of these services aren’t well known and many of them get passed over because of lack of information. This fair was a wonderful way to have everything in one place and give back to the people who gave so willingly to us.”


Summer14FlyerThank you for your interest in attending our upcoming Senior Resource Fair from 10 a.m. 1 p.m. on August 4 at the Whiteside County Senior Center (1207 West 9th Street, Sterling, IL). 

We will continue to update this list as more organizations register for the event.  My goal is to bring as many services and agencies that are of value to seniors to one convenient location. 

Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions you may have and let my staff know if there is any way we can be of assistance.  Our district office is always available at (309) 797-0001, and we look forward to hearing from you.
