Relocation Grants

The Biden administration is giving some Alaska tribes money to relocate as they continue to be impacted by climate change. The villages of Newtok and Napakiak will each get $25 million to move elsewhere.

Ongoing erosion is a major concern in both spots. $5 dollar “planning grants” have also been awarded to the villages of Point Lay, Huslia, Fort Yukon and Nelson Lagoon.

This announcement comes as the annual tribal nations summit is underway at the White House.
