The Tanana Chiefs Conference (TCC) Village Planning and Development (VP&D) program recently enhanced their programs ability to provide technical and planning assistance to the Tanana Chiefs Conference Region through the addition of a Grants Manager, Rural and Economic Development Specialist, and Community Planning Coordinator. The VP&D Program provides funding and technical assistance to tribal councils in hiring temporary village-based Community Planning and Grant Development Specialists. VP&D is currently working on a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) for the TCC region which will allow the TCC region communities to come together and help promote stronger economic resilience. They are also working with our Tribal Councils to ensure they are receiving the proper training and tools to improve grant success rates in our region.
