Councils of Governments (COGs) are voluntary associations of local governments formed under Texas law. The East Texas Council of Governments serves the following fourteen counties in the East Texas region.
Centrally located within the United States, East Texas is easily accessible by air, rail and road. Our region has top-notch education and workforce training institutes. And you just will not find anywhere else with the combination of rolling hills, piney woods and vast, clear lakes that comprise the largely undeveloped East Texas landscape.
