KVCOG is a municipal services corporation owned and operated by and for the benefit of its members. KVCOG helps its members to deliver cost effective and efficient municipal services, to create a more stable, growing, and diversified regional economy, to improve transportation and communication, and to preserve our natural environment through conservation of resources and wise land use planning and decision-making.

KVCOG grew out of a shared desire by municipal officials in Kennebec, Somerset, and western Waldo Counties to take a regional approach to improving life for their citizens by pooling resources and building their capacity to solve problems and to take advantage of opportunities not otherwise available to any one municipality. KVCOG is an example of a successful and productive regional collaboration in practice. Founded in 1967, KVCOG is in its 46th year of serving its municipal members. Membership evolved from the founding municipalities to the current forty-eight. These forty-eight members represent a population of about 182,000.

KVCOG’s staff of eight offers planning (land use, environmental, solid waste, transportation), community development, economic development, and business finance services to members and their citizens. KVCOG enjoys working relationships with the Maine State Planning Office, Department of Transportation, Department of Economic and Community Development (CDBG), and the Finance Authority of Maine. The US Department of Commerce (EDA), the US Department of Agriculture, Rural Development, and the US Small Business Administration also fund KVCOG municipal and business assistance programs. KVCOG is a federally designated Economic Development District and a state designated Regional Planning and Development District.

Through affiliations with the Maine Department of Economic and Community Development, the Maine Small Business Development Center, the Maine Manufacturers Extension Partnership and the Maine Procurement Technical Assistance Center, KVCOG packages a portfolio of state business attraction and technical assistance and counseling programs designed to retain and attract firms able to create jobs.
