COG's Regional Housing and Planning programs promote sustainable growth and development patterns to create a more competitive and resilient National Capital Region. The housing and planning programs are part of COG's Department of Community Planning and Services and work collaboratively to develop innovative regional plans, programs, policies, and research to address critical regional issues and needs around growth, housing, land use, transportation, and the environment.
Since its adoption and endorsement, Region Forward has been a driving force in regional decision making MWCOG's Transportation Planning Board, the regionally designated MPO, voted to utilize Region Forward's policy framework and performance measures to align future transportation projects with the goals in the regional vision. All 21 of the local governments in COG's membership have officially endorsed Region Forward by signing the Greater Washington 2050 Compact, a voluntary agreement by local governments, business groups, foundations, smart growth advocacy groups, and nonprofits to advance and adhere to the goals and targets in Region Forward.
