The Board of Directors of the Mid-Columbia Council of Governments met on August 23, 2017, to consider the future of the organization and its component programs and services.
At the conclusion of that meeting, the Board determined “…that the Mid-Columbia Council of Governments cease providing services under all programs and contracts, and staff is directed to notify the appropriate parties and agencies in accordance with the relevant agreements. Further, …MCCOG shall continue to provide all services until such time that the appropriate processes and transitions may be undertaken by the parties in the best interest of the public, programs, employees and the organization as a whole.”

As of February 1, 2018 most all programs will have transferred to another agency. Their new locations and contact information are provided below:
