Project Title & Description
Indian General Assistance Program
This project will continue to capacity build and maintain the tribal environmental program. The program will protect the health and safety of tribal and community members through environmental education and public awareness presentations. A solid waste action plan will be developed for cleanup and closure of one dumpsite. Baseline water quality testing will continue in partnership with the state and other nearby river communities. The tribe will maintain its commitment to the Kobuk River Watershed Council with active membership. The council will complete a baseline assessment of surrounding subsistence use areas to protect those areas for the future use and harvest.
