affordable broadband as part of a
nineteen community system.
•Establish approval and support from CCTHITA Business and Economic Development
•Establish approval and support from CCTHITA Executive Board

Klawock Cooperative Association
•Define a financial limit available from CCTHITA, Craig Community Association,
POWTEC and Klawock Cooperative Association.
•Establish a partnership with AP&T and ACS for the Prince of Wales Island.
•Complete a fully engineered solution complete with material lists and obtain hard
cost estimates from vendors and contractors for each phase, including local, backhaul
