NATIVE VILLAGE OF NAPAIMUTE SETS SAIL TO GREATER PROSPERITY WITH EDA GRANT

On April 24, 2019, the Economic Development Administration (EDA), awarded the Napaimute a $ Economic Adjustment Assistance grant to purchase a Landing Craft Mechanized (LCM). Christened by the village as the Nukalpiaq, a word that means “good provider,” the 75-foot LCM, also know as a Mike Boat, now enables the village to safely and efficiently deliver its product to customers. The village put the Nukalpiaq, which is equipped with a hydraulic telescoping deck crane to load and unload cargo, into service earlier this year. The boat has been busy ever since.
