The Oregon Cascades West Council of Governments (OCWCOG) manages a variety of local, state, and federal programs to serve residents, local governments, and businesses in our tri-County region. OCWCOG is recognized by the State of Oregon as an Area Commission on Transportation (ACT) and a Type B Medicaid Transfer Agency. Additionally, the association is recognized by the Federal Government as an Area Agency on Aging (AAA), an Economic Development District (EDD), a U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Revolving Loan Fund Coordinator, a U.S. Department of Agriculture Revolving Loan Agency, and staffs the two Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) in the region. These designations increase OCWCOG’s ability to serve our communities’ needs.
As an Oregon intergovernmental entity, in addition to the programs and services that OCWCOG is required by State or Federal contract to provide, OCWCOG helps businesses find appropriate capital; facilitates seniors and persons with disabilities plan for independent living; coordinates local road improvement priorities; and assists with administration and technical support for its member governments.
Each program works towards OCWCOG’s mission of helping the region’s communities collaborate to solve problems and connect member governments, businesses, and individuals with a wide array of resources.
OCWCOG has three offices to better serve our community. Office locations include Albany, Corvallis, and Toledo.
