General Assistance

General Assistance program provides temporary assistance for essential needs: shelter, food, clothing, and utilities for Alaska Natives/Native Americans living in the Chugach Region (Seward, Valdez, Port Graham, Nanwalek, Tatitlek, Chenega Bay). Local Community Health Representatives (CHR) can assist clients with paperwork and ensure that all Natives who may qualify for assistance are aware of the program and its benefits. Program also works closely with the Regional 477 Program Coordinator to assist individuals seeking career and training opportunities.
