The Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium Center for Environmentally Threatened Communities supports rural Alaska communities experiencing infrastructure impacts resulting from flooding, erosion, and thawing permafrost.
Since 2017, CETC staff have worked with 22 communities to address environmental threats and achieve their vision of a safe, healthy, and sustainable future. Our two areas of focus are:
- Securing funding by working closely with communities so they can replace damaged community infrastructure, move homes and community buildings, develop new subdivisions, gain a better understanding of risk, and advance long-term planning.
- Helping to build community capacity to respond to threats by providing grant training and technical assistance.
