One of TJCOG's most critical roles for the region is that of a convener and mediator between local governments and partner organizations working to improve coordinated planning, share resources, and identify solutions that reduce duplication. TJCOG's Regional Partnerships are created when one of the following is identified:

  • A long-standing and ongoing need for coordination that extends beyond one meeting or project.
  • An emerging challenge that impacts multiple local governments.
  • An opportunity to leverage local funds or expertise through a collaborative effort.

Through these partnerships, TJCOG routinely brings together stakeholders impacted by a topic or challenge to ensure seamless communication, strategic planning, and a regional view continues across all organizations involved. Partner with us.
