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. Please review the updated BBEDC Affidavit of Residency Form for more information or call 842-4370.

Developing Alaska's Maritime Workforce

The University of Alaska has been collaborating with maritime industry representatives, state agencies, legislators and other training entities across the state since 2012 on the Fishing, Seafood and Maritime Initiative (FSMI).  The goal of the initiative is to assess, develop and deliver training programs, raise awareness and further research to prepare Alaskans to meet current and emerging workforce, economic and scientific needs.  Through this effort, the Alaska Maritime Workforce Development Plan was created and published in May 2014.  The University of Alaska is now working with maritime partners to implement the plan.  We encourage you to read the plan.
