Acquisition, rehabilitation, new construction, and multi-site rehabilitation are eligible development activities under this program. Economic Development Since its earliest days as a territory of the United States, Alaska has contributed to the economy of America, largely through supply of raw materials or partially processed products. Now Alaska’s abundant natural resources, from fossil fuel and mineral products to timber and fish, must compete in the global marketplace. Innovation and entrepreneurship have become critical to business success. One of the purposes of the Commission is economic development. The Commission firmly believes that sustainable economic development for Alaska’s rural communities, like that of the rest of America, will be generated in the private, commercial sector, not within government. To that end, the Commission supports the development of public infrastructure upon which the private sector creates jobs and wealth, and helps ensure that good businesses and business ideas have a chance to become long-term, self-sustaining enterprises. Over the history of the Program, the Commission has supported and advanced a wide array of economic development program activities ranging from community profile mapping to supporting innovative models for lending, and equity investment in Alaska. The Program is guided by Commission staff and the Economic Development Advisory Committee, which provides general policy guidance and funding recommendations in broad categories. It is anticipated that FY 08 funds will be made available via an RFP process. rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES Government Coordination The Commission is charged with the special role of increasing the effectiveness of government programs by acting as a catalyst to coordinate the many Federal and State programs that serve Alaska. In FY 08 the Commission will continue its role of coordinating State and Federal agencies and other partner organizations to accomplish its overall mission of developing Alaska’s communities. Other Emerging Issues The Commission anticipates an active role in the emerging issues and challenges related to erosion and relocation in Alaska in the future. The Commission is committed to partnering with other Federal, State and tribal VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:48 Jan 14, 2008 Jkt 214001 entities to ensure that public policy solutions are developed in the most expedient, responsive and culturallyappropriate manner. While no funds are appropriated for the Commission for this purpose in FY 08, Commission staff are working diligently to ensure that communities that may experience erosion or relocation issues are being vetted and reviewed appropriately prior to infrastructure development occurring. The Commission is committed to innovative, cost-effective and creative design and construction solutions. To that end, the Commission anticipates engaging in more diverse and experimental partnerships in FY 08, and will be seeking innovative design, construction and program and project management practices. In FY 08 the Commission will be creating an ongoing, agency wide evaluation system to measure the outcomes of Commission programs. It is anticipated that this work will begin in late spring or early summer, and would be designed to provide by empirical and qualitative data regarding Commission programs, projects and overall goal accomplishments in a broad set of evaluation criteria. It is the Commission’s intent to maintain highlevel measures that are correlated to the Commission’s goals related to improving access, reducing cost and improving the quality of services and facilities across Alaska. Program Advisory Committees, staff and Commissioners will play a critical role in shaping this evaluation methodology. Dated: January 9, 2008. George J. Cannelos, Federal Co-Chair. [FR Doc.
