The Northeastern Colorado Association of Local Governments is a voluntary association of county and municipal governments from Logan, Morgan, Phillips, Sedgwick, Washington and Yuma Counties. The Agency's purpose is to promote cooperation and coordination among local governments in Northeastern Colorado for the efficient use of public resources to improve the quality of life.

NECALG was started in Wray, Colorado in 1972 operating in the newly designated Planning and Management Region One. By the mid 1980’s NECALG moved away from planning and turned more to direct services.  CSBG, Weatherization, and Area Agency on Aging were the core grants, Enterprise Zone was a key economic development project that was added then. Smaller projects came and went as directed by the board over the years. Currently NECALG is providing services of CSBG, Enterprise Zone, Area Agency on Aging, Transportation, Single Entry Point, Nutrition and ADRC.
