Technical assistance


The primary goal of the CBCP is to provide a comprehensive and integrated restoration plan to assist with implementation of the 2014 Bay Agreement by:

  • Effectively and efficiently engaging Bay stakeholders to identify problems, needs, and opportunities in the watershed and avoid duplication of ongoing or planned actions by others;
  • Leveraging existing geospatial data to identify locations for restoration opportunities to maximize co-benefits (the set of multiple benefits or synergies returned from an explicit action to address multiple 2014 Bay Agreement outcomes) and making the most efficient use of implementation resourcing; and
  • Determining where and how USACE programs could be used to support implementation.
