The Prince William Sound Resource Advisory Committee will hold a virtual meeting from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. on Nov. 20 on projects for Title II funding for Secure Rural School allocations to the PWSRAC area, with unfinished business to continue from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. on Nov. 21.

Project proponents will be given time at the meeting to address the committee. Other members of the public interested in speaking during the meeting must put their request and comments in writing to tanya.zastrow@usda.gov or faxed to 209-424-7214 by Wednesday, Nov. 17. All written and verbal comments, including names and addresses, will become part of the public record.

Projects seeking funding must seek to enhance forest ecosystems or restore and improve land health and water quality on the Chugach National Forest and other lands nearby, including the communities of Chenega, Cordova, Tatitlek, Valdez and Whittier.

Microsoft Teams meeting links and conference call lines are on the Chugach National Forest website at cdv.tiny.us/advisory and the final agenda is to be posted on that website by Nov. 18.
