The Bay Program's Federal Agencies Committee (FAC) was formed in 1984 to share information among the participating agencies, provide advice to the Program, and assist with the implementation of the goals and commitments of the Program. The Agreement formalized the increasing role of Federal Agencies in the Bay Program. It provided a coordinated and cooperative framework for action with specific commitments for nutrient and toxic-pollution reduction, habitat restoration, coordination of research and ecological management tools, and the use of national-service opportunities for work on Federal lands.
