Y-K Region Partners Are Excited to Announce the 2018-2023 Y-K Region Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy Project


Y-K regional organizations are partnering to develop the 2018-2023 Update to the Y-K Region Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS). A CEDS is a tool for community-based and locally-driven economic planning, with strategies and an action plan to create stronger communities and economies. The CEDS process is being guided by the Association of Village Council Presidents (AVCP),  AVCP Regional Housing Authority, Calista Corporation, Coastal Villages Region Fund (CVRF), Yukon Delta Fisheries Development Association (YDFDA) and the Yukon Kuskokwim Health Corporation (YKHC).
