State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial Government Coordinating Council

The State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial Government Coordinating Council (SLTTGCC) strengthens the sector partnership by bringing together experts from a wide range of professional disciplines that relate to critical infrastructure protection from all levels of government.
