UERPC Financial Report

UERPC has become recognized as an ideal vehicle for addressing issues that require a regional perspective, obtaining over $226 million in grant funds since its establishment in November of 1972.  More specifically, this fiscal year UERPC obtained over $10.6 million from grant funds for our various counties and communities.

Diversity was the focal point during FY 2014.  UERPC management team sought out several new projects that were new to the Council of Government (COG) world and to UERPC.   The diversity of the new projects will allow UERPC to increase financial security. UERPC continues to focus on its customer service approach with its customers and with the UERPC commission. UERPC’s staff continues their goal to visit all communities and counties with the region.  Management wants UERPC to be seen as a resource for their housing, transportation, workforce, economic development and community needs.   To accomplish that goal, the agency continues with their all-inclusive marketing campaign.  Some of those marketing efforts include:  Facebook, Twitter, e-newsletter, success stories, and more.  UERPC utilized its second location as a marketing tool to capture community involvement and needs with dual locations.  UERPC commission members continue with board training to uniformly promote UERPC to the masses.
