Request for Comments/Input
AEA is seeking public comment until 5:00 pm on July 2nd on a draft Beneficiary Mitigation Plan (BMP). AEA has indicated that it is seeking input to help determine what types of eligible, pollution-reducing projects are of top priority to Alaska communities. AEA will revise the draft plan based on public input and anticipates the plan will be finalized in summer 2018, with project funding/solicitations to be awarded/begin in winter 2018. Additional information, an online public comment form and instructions for joining the list-serve for more regular project updates is available on AEA's website.
AEQ also has announced that it will hold public meetings that will: 1) include an overview of the settlement and the State's draft plan; 2) offer an opportunity for questions to be answered by program staff, and 3) provide a venue for submitting public comment on the plan.
