The success of the Alliance is based not only on the dedication of the five Gulf States, but also on leadership from federal partners. Thirteen federal agencies committed to supporting the Alliance have come together as a federal workgroup under the leadership of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the U.S. Department of Interior (DOI). The goals of the federal work group are to support the Gulf States and to coordinate an integrated federal response to priority regional issues identified by the Alliance. The federal workgroup brings diverse expertise and established experience. By coordinating and integrating these capabilities, the impact of federal resources is fully maximized.
