Advancing Regional Initiatives

The Progress Council has two major initiatives underway to promote more regional strategies in the delivery of government services and promotion of economic development.

The Mid Mon Valley Intergovernmental Cooperative focuses on ways to promote cooperative action as well as regional strategies in the delivery of municipal services. The Cooperative is comprised of member local governments in the Mid Mon Valley. Meetings are held bi-monthly. Major initiative include working with the PA Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) on multi-municipal peer review projects to review and provide advice on improving local services. The Cooperative also supports capacity building forums that bring together local government staff for training programs. A Progress Council consultant, PA Futures, advises on implementation strategies.
