This material supplements Protecting Wetlands: Tools for Local Governments in the Chesapeake Bay Region, published in 1997 by the Chesapeake Bay Program Office of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. That guide focused on how local governments could use their own authorities to protect wetlands; this supplement identifies federal and state programs that may assist local protection efforts, or that can be influenced by local governments to support local wetland protection goals. Federal programs are discussed in Chapter One, followed by state wetland programs in Chapter Two. Chapter Three identifies federal and state technical assistance, cost-share programs, and subsidies available to support private and local government conservation efforts. Some private sources of support are also included. Chapter Four describes sources of wetlands-related data and educational information. The Appendices provide a list of acronyms and detailed contact information for the government and nongovernmental organizations mentioned throughout the publication. Local governments concerned about the conservation and restoration of wetlands in the Chesapeake Bay can influence federal wetlands regualtory programs and other federal programs that affect wetlands. With many of these federal laws, there are opportunities for public comment and requirements for agencies to hold public hearings before permits are issued or decisions are made. Local governments and privatge citizens can influence these processes through attending public meetings and submitting comments on proposed decisions.
