The MassBays region covers over 800 miles of coastline, from the tip of Cape Cod Bay to the New Hampshire border, and serves 50 coastal communities. With such a large area to cover (MassBays is one of the largest NEPs in the country), MassBays devised an innovative staffing structure to ensure that each region would receive the attention it deserved. MassBays teamed up with three nonprofit organizations and one Regional Planning Agency based in coastal Massachusetts to host MassBays staff members. As a result, MassBays staff is working with communities to implement program goals and objectives in five coastal subregions: Upper North Shore, Lower North Shore, Metro Boston, South Shore, and Cape Cod.
