FEB:  Federal Interagency Council - Philadelphia Area


Welcome to the Federal Interagency Council!

The Federal Interagency Council comprises more than 40 federal agencies and offices serving the Region III states of Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia.  Federal regional jurisdictions, however, can vary among the agencies.  The Council represents senior federal managers and policy staff, and also includes representation from the leadership of Philadelphia area community organizations.
The Council, an affiliate of the Philadelphia Federal Executive Board (FEB), provides a forum for federal collaboration and partnership opportunities that support presidential initiatives, promote job creation, employment and training, and seek to improve economic security for America's families.  It also serves as a clearinghouse for identifying and leveraging federal resources and grant funding announcements, and for informing and supporting collaborations with Philadelphia area community organizations.  The meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month at the FEB unless otherwise noted.

The Council was established on May 26, 2010 at a conference on "The Recovery Act: A Year in Review" that was sponsored by the
Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration.  It brought together 11 federal agency representatives who agreed to collaborate to promote economic development and security for all Americans in carrying out the American Recovery and Investment Act (ARRA).   

Carl Montoya, Associate Regional Administrator,
HHS Administration for Children and Families, currently serves as the Council Chair.  The Deputy Chair, is V. Chapman Smith from the National Archives.

Enclosed is a list of member federal agencies and offices.
