The NVK is expanding to a new, distant community site directly because of climate change. Increasingly severe coastal erosion and flooding will make the low-lying barrier island uninhabitable. To protect the life, health, and safety of the Kivalina people at the current site, the NVK requested grant writing support from CRW and the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium to help clean up the existing landfill. This project includes the planning and design of protecting the landfill in Kivalina.

CRW is preparing the community Master Plan for Kivalina in support of the community’s expansion to K-Hill. The Master Plan is being prepared as part of the Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract CRW holds hold with the Native Village of Kivalina. The work is being completed in coordination with the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium who is providing oversight. The Master Plan will evaluate needs and improvement options for the new site at K-Hill in addition to current needs at Kivalina. Public Meetings began in January 2020 and the Master Plan is expected to be completed in fall 2022.
