In the nation's capital the Chesapeake Bay Foundation's Federal Affairs Office works with members of Congress, Administration officials, the DC Mayor and Council, and partners to ensure strong federal and local support for Chesapeake Bay restoration. Since 1983, the federal government has been a partner in the voluntary Chesapeake Bay Agreement.

Today, members of Congress and the Environmental Protection Agency play key roles in ensuring that the Chesapeake Bay receives sufficient funding to support the restoration efforts and to ensure that the 6 Bay watershed states and Washington, D.C. are meeting their pollution reduction goals.

The Federal Affairs Office works to educate lawmakers and officials about the importance of saving the Bay, raising the organization's profile with national media, and working with partners and grassroots individuals to engage policymakers.
