Community Environment and Safety

(Safe, Healthy, Sustainable Communities)

Rural Alaska communities are changing. Shifts in social, economic, environmental and climate conditions are affecting the health and quality of life for Alaska Natives. The Department of Community Environment and Safety (CES) works with tribal health system, government, and public and private organizations to understand local changes and to develop strategies that encourage resilience and wellness.

We provide technical assistance and fund projects that demonstrate local innovations; with a network of community observers, we help to address the effects of change on community health. Through partnerships, open communication and attention to local needs, CES helps communities to become safe, healthy and sustainable communities. Visit our programs at right.
