The CEDS development process began in September 2016, and ran through April 2017. During that time, project staff worked with over thirteen communities, gathered input from all major industry sectors in Alaska, and analyzed data from more than 700 individual and business survey respondents. This CEDS was facilitated and compiled by the State of Alaska’s Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development (DCCED), with the core project team from the Division of Economic Development (DED), and contracted assistance from the University of Alaska Center for Economic Development (UACED). The project was jointly funded by the Federal Economic Development Administration (EDA), and the State of Alaska.
