Established in 2005, the Capitol Region Council of Governments (CRCOG) Foundation, Inc. was created to support the broad range of planning and direct service activities carried out locally by Capitol Region municipalities and regionally by CRCOG. The Foundation is dedicated to advancing policies and programs in four strategic areas—Transportation, Community Development, Public Safety, and Municipal Services—and serves three key roles: as an educator, a convener, and a funder.
