Welcome to our Special Edition of the Silver Jackets Newsletter. This edition has been prepared to provide a reference of federal agency programs, resources and training opportunities that interagency Silver Jackets teams can leverage to achieve their flood risk management goals. The contributing agencies have provided the following information to increase awareness among participating agencies:
This Special Edition is also intended to support interagency project discussions at the August 2014 Interagency Flood Risk Management Project Workshop in Southbridge, MA and follow-up meetings. Discussions during the workshop will center on how to enhance interagency collaboration, leverage agency resources, and improve project success.
We hope that this consolidated information will be useful and serve as a catalyst to increase coordination and collaboration among state and federal agencies. Increased coordination can help direct limited resources to where they are most beneficial, while improving the combined efficiency and effectiveness of agencies.
