Assisting Local Governments

The goal of the Alliance’s Local Government Support program is to provide technical assistance, training and/or access to resources that enable local governments to implement actions that protect or restore their watershed(s) and to influence policy by providing forums for and facilitating dialogue among local officials.

Technical Assistance Program

Thanks to funding from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, we are focusing on accelerating the implementation of green infrastructure stormwater best management practices (BMPs) in Blair County, Pennsylvania MS4 (municipal separate storm sewer system) communities and providing the resources necessary to incorporate green infrastructure into long-term planning in the region.


The Alliance coordinates the work of Local Government Advisory Committee (LGAC), a group comprised of local government officials from across the watershed who have been appointed to the committee by their respective Governors or Mayor (in the case of the District).
