Federal Help for Alaskan Communities Affected by Climate Change

Obama, Visiting Arctic, Will Pledge Aid to Alaskans Hit by Climate Change.

Mr. Obama is scheduled to announce that the Denali Commission, the federal agency that coordinates government assistance to communities in Alaska, would oversee short- and long-term programs to safeguard and repair the coastal villages, including “voluntary relocation efforts, where appropriate.”
