Community Partnerships for Self-Reliance

The University of Alaska Fairbanks, Community Partnerships for Self- Reliance (CPS) was established to support rural Alaska communities in working towards their vision of long-term self-reliance and sustainability through community driven research.

Traditional Harvest Practices are an integral part of community self-reliance, sustainability, and wellbeing. Environmental, economic, and social changes are all impacting this way of life.
