Action Plan

The U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration has designated GPCOG as an Economic Development District serving 26 communities in Cumberland County. As an Economic Development District, one of our core responsibilities is the creation of a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy for the GPCOG region. To fulfill that mission GPCOG brings together our municipal members, our regional partners and our region’s communities to:

  • Use data to assess our current strengths and weaknesses
  • Use our collective vision to define our collective goals
  • Use our combined resources to achieve our shared goals through defined outcomes
  • Measure our success in more good jobs, greater equity, and more effective resiliency

GPCOG is a convener, a catalyst and conduit to regional achievement. All our economic actions are aligned with our Strategic Plan in support of greater regional prosperity.
