Green Hills Regional Planning Commission

The Green Hills Regional Planning Commission (GHRPC), located in Trenton, MO, is one of nineteen organizations operating as a sub-state planning and development agency serving the State of Missouri. The Commission is organized as a voluntary association of local governments.

The GHRPC retains a staff of professionals who work on projects intended to foster improved quality of life throughout the 11 county “Green Hills” region, which includes: Caldwell County, Carroll County, Chariton County, Daviess County, Grundy County, Harrison County, Linn County, Livingston County, Mercer County, Putnam County and Sullivan County.     

Mission Statement: Partner with rural communities to implement plans that promote a strong workforce and economic development by providing more housing, transportation and infrastructure choices, and protect natural resources for our region.

Vision Statement: Improve social and economic climate and well-being of our region.


The Job Center Programs in the area will be staffed through a different organization starting July 1st. With this change, the Trenton Job Center will be closing. All of the services that have been available from the Trenton Job Center will still be available through either the Chillicothe or Kirksville Job Center. If you have questions about services after July 1st, please call your closest Job Center. If you cannot get ahold of someone or have questions about the transition, please call the Workforce Development Board office at (660)359-3622. We apologize for this inconvenience, but remember we are still here to help.
