BRISTOL BAY, BOROUGH OF
This award was originally funded for the purpose of funding two new positions at the Camai Community Heath Center in Naknek, AK. The first position to be funded was a Chief Financial Officer (1 FTE for one year). Following that, the second position was to be a Community Education and Eligibility Assistant (1 FTE for one year). The Camai CHC is located in remote Alaska, far from the road system and accessible only by air. Recruiting and retaining professionals for areas like this is very arduous. Camai CHC has the same administrative requirements, however, as clinics in less isolated areas. With these funds, Camai CHC purposed to create positions that would eventually stimulate efficiencies and new revenue sources for the clinic, thus effectively paying for themselves.
