Here’s a little about us.
Tri-County Council for Western Maryland, Inc (TCCWMD) is a regional council of governments owned by Allegany, Garrett and Washington Counties in Appalachian Maryland. TCCWMD was formed in 1971 to provide a platform to promote communication, coordination and cooperation on issues affecting the region.
TCCWMD is a designated development district of the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) and the US Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration (EDA), and as such represents a working partnership of federal, state and local government. The Council’s primary focus is to solve area-wide problems and encourage regional economic development. By facilitating the development of annual economic and community development plans, the Council, in turn makes the region eligible for federal implementation resources.
Today, TCCWMD continues to provide a place for regional discussion, bringing together elected officials with business and education leaders to share in the decision-making process to resolve issues that transcend traditional political boundaries.
