Florida Regional Councils Association: Partnerships for the Future
The Florida Regional Councils Association (FRCA) is the statewide organization of the 10 regional planning councils (RPCs). FRCA strengthens Florida's RPCs, partners with government and the business community to enhance regional economic prosperity, and improves the consistency and quality of RPC programs to ensure they add value to state, regional and local initiatives.
Welcome to the Florida Regional Councils Association
Regional Planning Councils Apply Regional Metrics to Economic Development Strategy

​In partnership with the Florida Chamber Foundation, FRCA launched a website on regional metrics, ​
http://www.flchamber.com/foundation/the-florida-scorecard/   These regional metrics, aligned with the Chamber’s Six Pillars framework, are used in each Council’s Comprehensive Economic Development Strategies (CEDS). As federally designated Economic Development Districts, each Council is required to adopt a strategy that serves as an economic development plan for the regional economy. Investment priorities identified in the strategy become eligible for funding through the U.S. Economic Development Administration.

​FRCA is pleased to present the 2014-2015 Annual Report which highlights the activities and accomplishments of Florida's 10 Regional Planning Councils.
