ANCHORAGE, Alaska—Officials with the U.S. Energy Department and Alaska's Denali Commission say five Alaska Native tribes will receive technical help for clean-energy efforts.
The tribes are the Venetie Village council, the Native Village of Kwinhagak/Quinhagak, the Native Village of Teller and the Organized Village of Kake.
Officials say the goal is to create local jobs and improve energy self-sufficiency.
The assistance is part of the Energy Department's Strategic Technical Assistance Response Team program.
The federally funded Denali Commission supports road, energy, sanitation and other infrastructure projects in rural Alaska.
