Supporting the Advancement of Bering Sea Communities
Since 1992, the Western Alaska Community Development Quota Program has worked to transform the economies and quality of life in sixty-five communities on the coast of the Bering Sea. This innovative program aims to build strong, fisheries-based economies and alleviate poverty by empowering the residents of western Alaska to participate in the Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands groundfish, halibut and crab fisheries. Through industry partnerships, direct investments in fisheries, community development activities, and investments in human capital, western Alaska communities are realizing the promise of the CDQ Program.
