Norton Sound Economic Development Corporation (NSEDC) is a private 501(c)(4) non-profit corporation representing 15 member communities and over 8,700 people in the Bering Strait region of Northwestern Alaska. NSEDC is one of six Community Development Quota (CDQ) organizations in Alaska.
NSEDC maintains a balance between local economic development oriented toward residents of the Norton Sound region and active participation in the distant-water fisheries in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands. Key to that balance is the establishment of programs designed to provide immediate benefits to the residents of the region along with the continued pursuit of longer-term investments that provide a stable source of economic strength.
NSEDC will continue to accept Energy Subsidy applications until Feb. 21.
In Nome, sign ups will now take place at the NJUS office until Thursday, Feb. 20. The office is located in the BSNC Building (Old Federal Building) Suite 110 on the West End of the building. Hours are 8 – 4:30 and will be open on Saturday, February 15 as well as February 17, President’s Day. Any member community residents outside of Nome who missed the sign ups or anyone with a question regarding this program should contact Sterling Gologergen in Nome at 443-2477 (in Nome) / (888) 650-2477 (toll-free) or Paul Ivanoff III in Unalakleet at (800) 385-6190.
