The mission of the Harry S Truman Coordinating Council (HSTCC) is to promote human resources & educational opportunities and to provide community, economic and environmental planning and development in order to enhance the quality of life for the residents of the four county region.


Our primary goal is to provide communities with the best use of limited resources in order to meet local needs. Our services include Comprehensive Planning, Economic Development, Grant Preparation and Administration, Transportation Planning, Hazard Mitigation, and Community Development. Through the Harry S Truman Community Development Corporation (HSTCDC), we rehabilitate, rent and sell homes for low to moderate income families in our region.
