Economic Development

DETCOG’s original mission was promoting the growth and development of our region. This remains an important focus today. As an Economic Development District, DETCOG works closely with the U.S. Dept. of Commerce - Economic Development Administration (EDA), the Governor’s Office and other state agencies, regional partners including the Texas Forest Country Partnership, local economic development corporations and other organizations to identify and assist with job creation opportunities in our region.
