The Regional Coalition of LANL Communities

The Regional Coalition of LANL Communities proactively addresses issues of the neighboring cities, counties and pueblos directly affected by LANL site activities. By working together, our governments are better poised to define the public interest and to work with DOE, NNSA, contractors and Congress to ensure that state and federal policies protect and promote local interests.

Founded in 2011, the Regional Coalition works in partnership to create one voice to ensure national decisions incorporate local needs and concerns. The organization’s focus is community and economic development, site employment, environmental remediation, and adequate funding for LANL.

The Regional Coalition of LANL Communities is comprised of nine cities, counties and pueblos surrounding the Department of Energy’s Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL).

The Regional Coalition was formed through a Joint Powers Agreement and all of the participating municipalities provide funding for the Regional Coalition’s operating budget. In addition, the Regional Coalition receives funding from the Department of Energy to further its mission of environmental remediation.
