At the start of implementation, the Fresno SC2 team comprised 18 federal employees representing 12 agencies and departments. The core team members were the full-time SC2 team lead and the two other full-time Fresno-based team members from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The SC2 team lead was an EPA employee located in the San Francisco regional office. Though working remotely, the SC2 team lead traveled to Fresno frequently and was considered to be a Fresno-based member by many city staff.
Supporting this core team was a network of regionally based team members. Most of these individuals were able to travel to Fresno on a monthly or quarterly basis, enhancing their ability to collaborate with city staff and fellow team members. The remaining team members worked out of Washington, DC, headquarters and provided support to the local and regionally based team members as needed. Exhibit A4.1 summarizes the federal agencies represented in the SC2 team over the first 18 months of the initiative.
