Application of University Research and Response to Community Needs in Coastal Alaska Marine Advisory Program – FY11
The Marine Advisory Program (MAP) is a statewide marine extension program serving coastal communities in Alaska. With sixteen extension faculty agents living and working in 10 coastal communities, MAP provides information, technical assistance and workforce development opportunities linking science with community needs to solve resource questions.
MAP is requesting funding for FY11 which will represent a commitment by the University to a MAP office in six communities/regions of the state that are currently funded solely by short-term grants. The communities affected are Cordova, Nome, Dillingham, Unalaska, Petersburg, and Kodiak.
