Project Title & Description
Indian General Assistance Program
The Native Village of Shishmaref must make positive environmental changes and face climate change challenges at a pace ahead of most of the rest of the country. As the GAP staff builds capacity the tribe will have developed plans, and continue to build partnerships with other agencies and organizations. GAP staff will educate Tribal members and provide information to the community through presentations and propose action plans regarding local and regional resources, climate change, water and air quality, solid waste management, and food security for the future.
This action is a partial funding. Balance of EPA funds will be incrementally funded at a later date, subject to availability (see administrative condition 19).
