ANCHORAGE - A federal agency has awarded a grant of more than $2.1 million for an environmental survey of the Chukchi Sea coastal region.
Alaska's congressional delegation on Tuesday announced the grant from the Minerals Management Service to the Alaska Monitoring and Assessment Program.
Other awards announced include a grant of more than $5.5 million from the Department of Health and Human Services to the state's Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program.
The program helps eligible residents pay the costs of heating and insulation during winter.
