Please note that project years may change as Kawerak seeks to maximize their partnerships and funding on projects with the State of Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facililities (ADOT-PF), the Denali Commission, the Federal Highways Administration (FHWA) Village Safe Water (VSF) and ANTHC. We also face funding constraints and need to be flexible.

  1. The respective project must be in the villages Long Range Transportation Plan or within Kawerak’s administrative planning component.
  2. The route must be included on the tribal inventory.
