Fort Edward Interagency Working Group
Meeting planning and facilitation
Against the backdrop of the largest dredging remediation project in the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (USEPA) history, the Fort Edward Interagency Working Group (IAWG) was established to provide a forum where state and federal agencies would meet twice a year to assist the Town and Village of Fort Edward as they work on community revitalization issues associated with the aftermath of the Hudson River PCB Superfund dredging project. The state and federal agencies involved in the IAWG provide community officials with various types of assistance, including financial, administrative, and/or technical guidance, in concert with direct access to available resources. Thanks to the long-term commitment and dynamic participation of IAWG members, the Fort Edward IAWG serves as a model for interagency cooperation and direct delivery of federal and state assistance to the local government.

- Meeting planning, including the identification and prioritization of agenda topics;
