Mission

Provide technical assistance to Tribal Councils to support sustainable community development for the Interior Alaska Native people.

What We Do

The Village Planning and Development (VP&D) program awards up to 20 contracts per year.

A village council can submit an application to hire a temporary Community Planning Specialist or Grant Development Specialist. An application is required from both the village council and the temporary employee.  If approved, the temporary Community Planning Specialist or Grant Development Specialist contract period is 16 weeks.

If your village’s council is interested in hiring a Community Planning Specialist or Grant Development Specialist through the VP&D Program please contact the Community Planning Coordinator for more information.
