The Corporation

The Corporation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, accounts for all funds, enters into contracts, and employs a staff to support the Commission’s work.  Our operations are funded through a combination of federal and state planning grants, SPC member contributions, in-kind service contributions, and grants from private foundations to support various transportation planning and economic development projects. Resources are applied to the core functions including SPC’s daily administrative operations and agency Work Programs.

We employ a professional staff to carry out the day-to-day work of the Commission.  The staff represents an invaluable resource in a wide range of policy and program areas, with expertise in transportation planning, strategic planning, economic development, financing, government contracting, exporting, Geographic Information Systems, and data management.
