REGIONAL PROGRAMS, PARTNERSHIPS & SOLUTIONS FOR
EAST TEXAS

OUR SERVICES

HELLO, WE ARE THE EAST TEXAS COUNCIL OF GOVERNMENTS

We are a voluntary association of counties, cities, school districts and special districts within the fourteen-county East Texas region. We assist local governments in planning for common needs, cooperating for mutual benefit and coordinating for sound regional development. Either directly, or through our contractors, ETCOG provides programs and services for East Texas seniors, employers and job seekers. We also build the 9-1-1 emergency call delivery system, provide peace officer training and homeland security planning services; and deliver rural transportation services, business finance programs, grant writing services and environmental grant funding for the region.

OUR REGION

Councils of Governments (COGs) are voluntary associations of local governments formed under Texas law. The East Texas Council of Governments serves fourteen counties in the East Texas region.

Centrally located within the United States, East Texas is easily accessible by air, rail and road. Our region has top-notch education and workforce training institutes. And you just will not find anywhere else with the combination of rolling hills, piney woods and vast, clear lakes that comprise the largely undeveloped East Texas landscape. 

OPEN MEETINGS


Our meetings are open to the public. Upcoming meetings are posted a minimum of 72 hours in advance.

WHAT OUR MEMBERS THINK

"I am pleased with the accountability, transparency, and efficiency ETCOG delivers for our local elected officials everyday. Frankly, ETCOG's scope and span of programs and services may be one of our region's most unfamiliar assets!"
