Infrastructure & Basic Services

Our area does not have essential infrastructure and basic services many other communities take for granted. Increasing public safety, Internet connectivity and transportation options, and reducing residents' cost of living will further stabilize and develop our region.


NWALT currently supports:

Construction of a road to Cape Blossom and a Cape Blossom Regional Port

Northwest Arctic Borough 5-year Public Safety Plan to build and maintain infrastructure while providing public safety officers in the villages

Bulk fuel and power system upgrades to improve electrical generation in communities such as Shungnak

Evaluating the feasibility of electrical interties between villages to improve the stability of electricty to villages, increase access to renewable energy sources  and reduce the cost of electrical generation

Evaluating potential roads between villages that are interested

Collaboration with Alaska Natural Gas Development Authority to develop propane infrastructure

Development of NANA Regional Corporation Community Multipurpose Office Buildings


NWALT has successfully worked with the City of Buckland and other local and state agencies to bring Buckland to the brink of having a competed citywide water and sewer system.
