Based on the expressed need from many communities in the Chesapeake Bay that are faced with the challenges of limited capacity and resources for meeting their stormwater management obligations, the EFC, in partnership with the Low Impact Development Center, has established the Municipal Online Stormwater Training (MOST) Center. The project was made possible by a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, who will provide $350,000 a year for the next five years to launch and operate the Center. The MOST Center will help communities bridge the gap in needed technical and financial resources through a comprehensive training program to help municipalities within the Chesapeake Bay Watershed access and implement innovative stormwater management techniques to improve water quality in the Bay. This will be accomplished through an innovative web based training program that will allow elected officials, program managers, procurement and financial officials, stormwater management staff, and other stakeholders to gain the necessary skill sets and information that can be used to create and enhance effective programs.
