NEFCO The Northeast Ohio Four County Regional Planning and Development Organization (NEFCO) was formed in 1974 as a regional council of governments by the elected officials within the counties of Portage, Stark, Summit and Wayne. NEFCO was created as a voluntary organization to enable local officials to discuss problems facing the Region and to develop strategies to cope with them.  NEFCO also serves as a forum through which local, state and federal planning programs can be more effectively coordinated.

A really great resource on the NEFCO website is on the resources page that provides a listing of grant and loan funding available - Funding Opportunities - NEFCO (
