Hood Canal LIO 2018 Near Term Action (NTA) Process Information Session

Hood Canal LIO 2018 Near Term Action (NTA) Process Information Session

11/14/2017 -
10:00am to 12:00pm
HCCC (17791 Fjord Dr. NE, Suite 124, Poulsbo, WA 98370)

Agenda linked here

The Near Term Action (NTA) process for the 2018 Puget Sound Action Agenda will be starting up soon. There will be a local LIO NTA process for projects taking place in the Hood Canal LIO area, in addition to the regional review. The Puget Sound Partnership expects to open the solicitation and release their process guide to the public on Nov 13th. HCCC will also release our LIO NTA process guide on Nov 13th. 

HCCC will hold two NTA Information Sessions to explain the process and answer questions:
  • Nov 14th, 10:00am-12:00pm at HCCC (17791 Fjord Dr. NE, Suite 124, Poulsbo, WA 98370)
  • Nov 21st, 10:00am-12:00pm at Mason Co. Public Works (100 W Public Works Dr, Shelton, WA 98584)

We strongly encourage you to attend one of the info. sessions if you are considering submitting a project as an NTA. The process has changed significantly from last time. PSP staff will be present to answer questions as well. This will also be an opportunity to share project ideas with other potential NTA owners.

Who should submit an NTA? PSP intends the Action Agenda to be a "marketplace of ideas" that captures all work going on in Puget Sound, regardless of whether you are pursuing funding for your project. However, EPA utilizes the Action Agenda to select recipients for National Estuary Program funds. So, if you are interested in pursuing NEP funds, your project must be an NTA. Other advantages to being an NTA include: showing priority status to other potential funders (other state, federal, and private funding programs may not use the Action Agenda directly to make funding decisions like the NEP, however, they do look to it for guidance and verification of a project's legitimacy or priority), PSP also submits the list of NTAs to the state legislature, and uses it to inform a funding recommendation each budget session.
 
Some key dates (review process details to come):
  • Nov 13, 2017 - Solicitation open, process guides released to public
  • Dec 22, 2017 - NTA Pre-registration deadline
  • Feb 6, 2018 - Draft NTA proposal deadline
  • Mar 30, 2018 - Final NTA proposal deadline

Please refer any questions to Hood Canal LIO Coordinator: Haley Harguth (hharguth@hccc.wa.gov; 360-328-4625). And remember that there will be a plethora of information coming soon when the solicitation guide is released. We request your patience in waiting for that document before asking process related questions.
