Effective Immediately! BBEDC Residency Policy has been Revised
At the September 2015 BBEDC Board of Director's meeting in Dillingham, the board voted to revise the BBEDC Residency Policy to include a change in the number of days a resident can be gone from a CDQ community and still remain eligible for BBEDC programs and services. The allowable absence time frame was reduced from 90 consecutive days per year to 60 consecutive days per year. As before, there are excusable absences allowed for longer periods of time. Make sure you fill out the most recent form (9/2015) when submitting your residency form with any application.
