The governments of five northeast Alabama counties, DeKalb, Jackson, Limestone, Madison, and Marshall, and the municipalities located in those counties make up TARCOG. The council’s membership is made up of representatives from the counties and municipalities.

TARCOG operates a Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) that helps local businesses finance expansions or obtain start-up capital The RLF is administered at the regional level and local businesses from Madison; Limestone; Marshall; Jackson; and DeKalb counties with 100 or fewer employees are eligible. Loan amounts are generally $25,000 – $200,000 (although exceptions can be made) and there is a job creation (or retention) requirement. Please click here for more information on RLF program.
