The FRCOG works to represent the needs of the region with one voice, and the scale of our advocacy changes according to need. Our advocacy may focus on specific issues or a particular project, or address the best interest of a sub-region in the county, the needs of Franklin County overall, or the needs of rural communities throughout the Commonwealth.  We often advocate for the needs of Franklin County, both at the state and federal levels, through partnerships with other mission-driven organizations.
