PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Introduction The Denali Commission Act of 1998 (Title III, Pub. L. 105–277, 42 U.S.C. 3121) created a State-Federal partnership to address crucial needs of rural Alaskan communities, particularly isolated Native villages and other communities lacking access to the national highway system, affordable power, adequate health facilities and other impediments to economic self sufficiency. Guided by five Commissioners representing statewide non-governmental organizations, the unprecedented results to date testify to the efficacy of inter-agency teamwork, effective training, and the setting of high sustainability standards by those closest to the problems at hand. The Commission is a highly effective catalyst for enhanced collaboration among Federal, State, tribal and local governments as well as private sector, non-profit and other interests. The over arching goal of enabling economic self sufficiency is based on effective community comprehensive planning, and regional support. This document will guide the reader through: • An introduction of the Denali Commission’s purposes and mission. • The Denali Commission’s Work Plan for Fiscal Year 2005. • The Five-year strategic plan.
