The Rogue Valley Council of Governments (RVCOG) is funded primarily by state and federal sources, which account for more than two-thirds of its annual budget. Since many of its programs involve compliance with state or federal regulations, the Council aggressively seeks government grants and contracts to fund the programs. The Council neither levies nor collects taxes.
Technical and administrative assistance provided to member governments is either a direct benefit of membership or is funded through grant programs or direct contract. Member's annual dues are based on a per capita rate and represent less than 2 percent of the budget. Revenue from dues helps meet the "local match" requirements of various state and federal grants and pays for the Council's basic administrative activities not covered by grant programs.
