CARE Program

In 2006, the NIC was awarded a CARE grant from the EPA titled Protecting Our Health: Prioritizing Toxic Issues That Affect The Land, Air and Water of Our Communities, Nelson Island Consortium, Alaska. The goal of our project is to build our communities’ capacity in understanding, and taking effective action(s) at the local level in addressing our toxic concerns. The long term goal of our project is to build a self­sustaining community collaboration that addresses our environmental and health issues, and is able to partner with entities whose missions are inclusive of our communities-defined benefit. The contact for this program is Walter Paul 907-427-7115
