The One Voice® Approach
The One Voice® approach is positively recognized and viewed as a means of helping our elected federal representatives to prioritize and shepherd needed projects through the federal budget process. 

Our efforts are positively recognized at the federal level and we have been encouraged to continue our collaborative approach and build upon the relationships and communications established with our federal representatives. 

Although Congress stopped earmarking funds in 2010, the federal government still distributes hundreds of billions of dollars through formula and discretionary programs. The San Joaquin One Voice® group takes this opportunity to receive counsel from legislators, legislative staff and the administration about the various federal programs and teach us how we can successfully compete in the grant process.

Successes
San Joaquin COG established the San Joaquin One Voice® effort in 2000. These trips have been very successful and have led to $122 million coming back to San Joaquin County from the federal government. In addition to federal dollars, we have also focused on specific policies.  Participants have testified at committee hearings on water, educated Congress and the Administration on the housing crisis (leading to federal assistance), and worked with Members on the introduction of legislation.
