The Capital Area Council of Governments (CAPCOG) is a voluntary association including over 90 member governments, cities and counties as well as school districts, chambers of commerce, non-profit agencies, and any organization that has an interest in regionalism.  CAPCOG was established in 1970 under Chapter 391, Local Government Code, and is one of 24 COGS in the State of Texas.

For more than 40 years, CAPCOG’s purpose has been to serve as an advocate, planner and coordinator of initiatives that, when undertaken on a regional basis, can be more effective and efficient. CAPCOG assists the region in recognizing opportunities for cooperation and eliminating unnecessary duplication in the areas of emergency communications, elderly assistance, law enforcement training, criminal justice planning, solid waste reduction, homeland security planning, infrastructure development, transportation planning, and economic development.
