FY 2019 Appropriations Summary The Commission has historically received federal funding from several sources. The two primary sources at this time include the Energy & Water Appropriation Bill (‘‘base’’ or ‘‘discretionary’’ funds) and an annual allocation from the Trans-Alaska Pipeline Liability (TAPL) fund. The proposed FY 2019 Work Plan assumes the Commission will receive $15,000,000 of base funds, which is the amount referenced in the reauthorization of the Commission passed by Congress in 2016 (ref: Pub. L. 114–322), and a $1,900,000 TAPL allocation based on discussions with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Approximately $4,000,000 of the base funds will be used for administrative expenses and non-project program support, leaving $11,000,000 available for program activities. The total base funding shown in the Work Plan also includes an amount typically available from project closeouts and other de-obligations that occur in any given year. Approximately $200,000 of the TAPL funds will be utilized for administrative expenses and non-project program support, leaving $1,700,000 available for program activities. Absent any new specific direction or limitations provided by Congress in the current Energy & Water Appropriations Bill, these funding sources are governed by the following general principles, either by statute or by language in the Work Plan itself: • Funds from the Energy & Water Appropriation are eligible for use in all programs. • TAPL funds can only be used for bulk fuel related projects and activities. • Appropriated funds may be reduced due to Congressional action, rescissions by OMB, and other federal agency actions. • All Energy & Water and TAPL investment amounts identified in the work plan, are ‘‘up to’’ amounts, and may be reassigned to other programs included in the current year work plan, if they are not fully expended in a program component area or a specific project. • Energy & Water and TAPL funds set aside for administrative expenses that subsequently become available, may be used for program activities included in the current year work plan.

Background

    The Denali Commission's mission is to partner with tribal, federal, 
state, and local governments and collaborate with all Alaskans to 
improve the effectiveness and efficiency of government services, to 
build and ensure the operation and maintenance of Alaska's basic 
infrastructure, and to develop a well-trained labor force employed in a 
diversified and sustainable economy.
    By creating the Commission, Congress mandated that all parties 
involved partner together to find new and innovative solutions to the 
unique infrastructure and economic development challenges in America's 
most remote communities. Pursuant to the Act, the Commission determines 
its own basic operating principles and funding criteria on an annual 
federal fiscal year (October 1 to September 30) basis. The Commission 
outlines these priorities and funding recommendations in an annual work 
plan. The FY 2019 Work Plan was developed in the following manner.
     A workgroup comprised of Denali Commissioners and 
Commission staff developed a preliminary draft work plan.
     The preliminary draft work plan was published on 
Denali.gov for review by the public in advance of public testimony.
     A public hearing was held to record public comments and 
recommendations on the preliminary draft work plan.
     Written comments on the preliminary draft work plan were 
accepted for another ten days after the public hearing.
     All public hearing comments and written comments were 
provided to Commissioners for their review and consideration.
     Commissioners discussed the preliminary draft work plan in 
a public meeting and then voted on the work plan during the meeting.
     The Commissioners forwarded their recommended work plan to 
the Federal Co-Chair, who then prepared the draft work plan for 
publication in the Federal Register providing a 30-day period for 
public review and written comment. During this time, the draft work 
plan will also be disseminated to Commission program partners 
including, but not limited to, the Bureau

[[Page 18014]]

of Indian Affairs (BIA), the Economic Development Administration (EDA), 
Department of Agriculture--Rural Utilities Service (USDA/RUS), and the 
State of Alaska.
     At the conclusion of the Federal Register Public comment 
period Commission staff provides the Federal Co-Chair with a summary of 
public comments and recommendations, if any, on the draft work plan.
     If no revisions are made to the draft, the Federal Co-
Chair provides notice of approval of the work plan to the 
Commissioners, and forwards the work plan to the Secretary of Commerce 
for approval; or, if there are revisions the Federal Co-Chair provides 
notice of modifications to the Commissioners for their consideration 
and approval, and upon receipt of approval from Commissioners, forwards 
the work plan to the Secretary of Commerce for approval.
     The Secretary of Commerce approves the work plan.
     The Federal Co-Chair then approves grants and contracts 
based upon the approved work plan.

FY 2019 Appropriations Summary

    The Commission has historically received federal funding from 
several sources. The two primary sources at this time include the 
Energy & Water Appropriation Bill (``base'' or ``discretionary'' funds) 
and an annual allocation from the Trans-Alaska Pipeline Liability 
(TAPL) fund. The proposed FY 2019 Work Plan assumes the Commission will 
receive $15,000,000 of base funds, which is the amount referenced in 
the reauthorization of the Commission passed by Congress in 2016 (ref: 
Pub. L. 114-322), and a $1,900,000 TAPL allocation based on discussions 
with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Approximately 
$4,000,000 of the base funds will be used for administrative expenses 
and non-project program support, leaving $11,000,000 available for 
program activities. The total base funding shown in the Work Plan also 
includes an amount typically available from project closeouts and other 
de-obligations that occur in any given year. Approximately $200,000 of 
the TAPL funds will be utilized for administrative expenses and non-
project program support, leaving $1,700,000 available for program 
activities. Absent any new specific direction or limitations provided 
by Congress in the current Energy & Water Appropriations Bill, these 
funding sources are governed by the following general principles, 
either by statute or by language in the Work Plan itself:
     Funds from the Energy & Water Appropriation are eligible 
for use in all programs.
     TAPL funds can only be used for bulk fuel related projects 
and activities.
     Appropriated funds may be reduced due to Congressional 
action, rescissions by OMB, and other federal agency actions.
     All Energy & Water and TAPL investment amounts identified 
in the work plan, are ``up to'' amounts, and may be reassigned to other 
programs included in the current year work plan, if they are not fully 
expended in a program component area or a specific project.
     Energy & Water and TAPL funds set aside for administrative 
expenses that subsequently become available, may be used for program 
activities included in the current year work plan.
