SNEP Strategic Plan

The purpose of this Strategic Plan is to build a 30-year framework for the Southeast New England Program that achieves our programmatic goals by 2050 to ensure 1) a resilient ecosystem of safe and healthy waters, 2) thriving watersheds and natural lands, and 3) sustainable communities. To that end, the Program has set the following priority actions for the next five years: 1) increase local capacity, 2) increase available solutions toward water quality restoration, 3) ensure diverse representation in programmatic decision-making, 4) demonstrate ways to address common challenges at a watershed level, and 5) increase local buy-in by working with community leaders to demonstrate and quantify the direct and indirect benefits of restoration efforts.
