The Service works with other Department of the Interior bureaus, other Federal government agencies, and non-governmental entities and individuals to build a partnership-based approach to stewardship. Partnerships help us accomplish common goals because they:
- Are part of our culture.
- Combine individual strengths to accomplish missions.
- Foster relationships, common goals and collaboration.
- Build constituencies and broad-based community support.
- Leverage resources to meet challenges and improve opportunities.
The Division of Partner and Intergovernmental Affairs (DPIA) also responsible for coordinating the Service's Environmental Justice Program and working with Non-traditional Partners and Communities.
