HCCC works with its partners to bring actions informed by the strategic priorities of the Integrated Watershed Plan (IWP) to the Puget Sound Action Agenda. NTAs are identified as specific two-year actions that contribute to the IWP’s long-term goals.

HCCC is the Local Integrating Organization (LIO) for the Hood Canal Action Area, as designated by the Puget Sound Partnership. As the LIO, HCCC works with its partners to identify priority Hood Canal Near Term Actions (NTAs) every two years for inclusion in the Puget Sound Action Agenda

HCCC has incorporated Near Term Action (NTA) planning with the strategic planning framework outlined in the Integrated Watershed Plan (IWP). While the IWP provides the long-term plan for ecosystem recovery in Hood Canal, NTAs are identified as priority two-year actions to achieve specific goals and objectives.
