What is MCAG?
The Merced County Association of Governments, or MCAG, is an association of city and county governments, with members who meet to solve regional problems such as transportation, solid waste, and air quality. Here the cities and county come together as equal partners to solve problems that can only be accomplished by working together. To see more about what MCAG does, you can visit our website here or by clicking the MCAG logo at the bottom of the page.

Who makes sure that Measure V is spent properly?
I want to suggest a project. who should I talk to?
While we appreciate your interest in new projects, MCAG does not recommend projects directly. That authority is left to each individual jurisdiction. Speak to your city council or your county supervisor or the relevant staff to recommend projects. You can also access any jurisdiction website by clicking their official seal or logo at the bottom of the page.
i have some pictures of a project. can I send them in?
Absolutely! We're always looking for new pictures of projects in your area. If you have a good picture, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. If the picture is suitable for the website, we'll add it.
When will the regional projects begin?
Regional Measure V projects are dependent on the completion of the Implementation Plan (or IP). We plan to release a draft in late summer/early fall and complete the final plan in late fall/early winter. You can track the progress of the Implementation Plan here.
