Award Description: The Alaska District U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) is seeking to develop a subsistence evaluation framework, including a prototype model, which can be used by the Corps for future projects to help evaluate the economic and social benefits of the range of subsistence activities in a community (particularly remote, rural communities). While Corps guidance allows for subsistence to be included as a benefit for Corps projects, the guidance does not provide a clear or complete definition of subsistence, and it is not clear whether or not it is a high priority output. Therefore, the Corps has a need to have subsistence clearly defined, including all aspects of subsistence important to Alaska communities, including food, clothing, education, quality of life, health, and elder care.
