Texas Association of Regional Councils
The Texas Association of Regional Councils (TARC) was organized in 1973 by interlocal agreement among Texas’ 24 regional councils of governments. The statewide association assists the regional councils in strengthening their capabilities to serve their local government members; provides a forum for the regular exchange of information and ideas; educates other governmental entities, public and private organizations, and the general public about the services and functions of regional councils; and represents the councils before both state and federal agencies and legislative bodies. Each of the regional councils pays membership dues to participate.
