MNRG was formally established in 1998 as a forum for Federal agency senior executives to obtain proactive coordination of activities and to clearly establish the proper role of each Federal bureau with the Midwest, including the Upper Mississippi River, Missouri River, Ohio River and the Great Lakes watersheds. The MNRG aims to achieve this overarching goal through enhanced communications, coordination and collaboration on mutually recognized resource issues and by providing timely interagency assistance where needed.

Working together, the agencies represented by this group are committed to bringing results to the American public in the communities, towns, and farms of the Midwest.
