We also provide training in various aspects of the Community Development Block Grant program.

Information Technologies ─ Identifying and assessing technology needs. Assisting with hardware and software purchases. Database and application programming. Website and software development, and web hosting for local governments. We also help residents and communities obtain broadband services.
Transportation Planning ─ Rural counties and municipalities in Central Pennsylvania have a voice in the state’s transportation plans, working with SEDA-COG, the business community and non-profit organizations to establish the region’s transportation priorities. Local governments can also receive free or low-cost training through SEDA-COG's Local Technical Assistance program, offering courses in roadway maintenance and safety.
Regional Statistics ─ Good planning requires quality information. Data on a range of categories can be found here, e.g., census, employment, demographics, income, housing.
