Resources for Local Government
Resources for Local Government
Tracking and understanding all of the state and federal environmental regulations affecting local governments can be a daunting task. This web page was created to serve as a repository of links to information about the regulatory programs that apply to local government operations and access to funding resources that promote sustainability. The outreach materials featured on this page are useful to storm water operators, county drain commission staff, municipal planners and engineers, county health officials, community emergency response personnel, public works directors, road maintenance staff, building code officials, and sustainability managers.
EGLE has developed the Local Leaders Webinar Series to help Michigan's local officials and community leaders gain a better understanding of EGLE and the environmental regulations that affect their communities. Each month, EGLE will host a 1-hour webinar that will tackle a topic of interest to local officials and community leaders throughout the state.
Catalyst Communities is a comprehensive initiative to provide education, training, planning and technical resources to local government officials as they prepare for climate impacts on emergency response and public health. The Catalyst Communities initiative takes a multi-tiered approach to providing communities across the state with the knowledge, tools, and resources they need to take steps toward a just transition to decarbonization. The Catalyst Communities Webinar Series, which was developed by EGLE in coordination with partner agencies and stakeholders, are free to communities, recorded, and posted for future viewing.
