LIOs Submit Letter to EPA on NEP Funding

On November 26, AHSS Executive Committee Chair Pat McCarthy submitted a letter to US EPA Region 10.  The letter, signed by the Strait Ecosystem Recovery Network LIO, the Hood Canal Coordinating Council, the Alliance for Healthy South Sound, the South Central Action Area Caucus Group, and the Stillaguamish-Snohomish LIO, conveys an alternative recommended method for the distribution of National Estuary Program funding. The alternative model was also endorsed by Puget Sound tribal governments via the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission’s Board of Commissioners (NWIFC submitted a separate letter to EPA supporting the alternative model).
