Seeking Stormwater Solutions: Getting the MOST for Local Leaders

The Environmental Finance Center in partnership with the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay planned and implemented a virtual training program for local governments using on-demand courses from the MOST Center, facilitated peer-to-peer discussion forums, and matchmaking with local watershed groups and technical service providers. Three pilot-scale cohorts in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia, engaged 30 participants from 15 local governments throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Trainees gained an increased understanding of Chesapeake Bay Program Goals and Outcomes related to stormwater (i.e. water quality, flooding, and climate resilience), their relationship to local priorities and community co-benefits, the purpose of water quality regulations, and funding and assistance opportunities available for project implementation. The final report and an article in PSAB's magazine featuring this project are linked below.
