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 local actions aligned with the strategic priorities of HCCC’s Integrated Watershed Plan  for inclusion in the Puget Sound Action Agenda. HCCC also represents Hood Canal and its partners in various regional forums under the Puget Sound Action Agenda structure and liaises with key partners in Action Agenda planning and implementation.

The Hood Canal Action Area representative on the Puget Sound Partnership’s Ecosystem Coordination Board is Scott Brewer, HCCC Executive Director.
