Mission Statement

We are an association of, for, and by local governments. We assist our members in planning for common needs, cooperating for mutual benefit, and recognizing regional opportunities for improving the quality of life in North Central Texas.


The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) is a voluntary association of, by and for local governments, established to assist in regional planning. NCTCOG's purpose is to strengthen both the individual and collective power of local governments and to help them recognize regional opportunities, eliminate unnecessary duplication, and make joint decisions. 

Now in its 57th year, NCTCOG's programs and departments encompass transportation planning, environment and development, aging and disability resources, emergency preparedness, demographic research, regional training, criminal justice, 911 emergency numbers, a regional police academy, and more.  Use the links on this page to learn about the programs and initiatives active throughout the 16-county region.

TXShare is a cooperative purchasing program designed to serve as a municipal marketplace for the public sector.  Our goal is to make public procurement and purchasing as streamlined and pain-free as possible, with an emphasis on best value.
