EPA is releasing its Alaska Native Villages Program 2012 annual report. The report highlights the significant impacts that the program is having in Alaskan native and rural villages by providing first-time access to drinking and wastewater infrastructure, while improving public health and the environment, and creating jobs. Since its inception in 1996, the program has provided over $470 million in grant funding to help Alaskan native and rural villages address their basic water and sanitation needs through facility construction, training, and technical assistance. Collaborating with federal and state partners, EPA has targeted the most underserved communities. Between 1996 and 2011, EPA funds supported more than 600 projects while the percent of rural Alaskan homes with drinking water and wastewater service grew from 50 percent to 92 percent.
