More Notes: 
AVCP’s member tribes reside in small isolated villages scattered throughout the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta in an area that is approximately 59,000 square miles and roughly the size of the State of Oregon.  The villages are not connected by road to one another, nor to the rest of Alaska.  AVCP serves its member tribes by providing, at their request, a variety of social service, human development and culturally relevant programs that promote tribal self-determination and self-governance and work to protect tribal culture and traditions.  AVCP provides services which are funded by federal and state grants as well as a variety of other grant sources.
