Shared Neutrals Programs

Federal agencies often have worked together to share their resources.  In some cases, they developed formal programs for "sharing" neutrals in ADR or conflict resolutions.  A number of collaborative and cooperative efforts were accomplished through local Federal Executive Boards and through the Department of Health and Human Services (“Sharing Neutrals”).  These programs allow participating Federal agencies, through reciprocal agreements, to share trained neutral mediators and other mediation resources.

Shared Neutrals program operate in the following locations:

Atlanta

Baltimore

Boston

Chicago

Cleveland

Colorado

Dallas-Ft. Worth

Detroit

Houston

Kansas City

Los Angeles

Minnesota

New Mexico

New Orleans

New York City

Oklahoma

Oregon
