Title VIII required the creation of Subsistence Regional Advisory Councils to enable rural residents to have a meaningful role in Federal subsistence management. The Secretaries of the Interior and of Agriculture subsequently established the Federal Subsistence Management Program. The Program is a multi-agency effort that includes the Fish and Wildlife Service, National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Indian Affairs and the USDA Forest Service. These agencies manage the Federal public lands where subsistence activities take place, including waters running through or next to Federal public lands and limited marine jurisdiction. The Secretaries delegated management authority for subsistence uses in Alaska to the Federal Subsistence Board, which is comprised of the regional directors of the five Federal public lands managers in Alaska and a representative appointed by the Secretaries to serve as chair. The Board is the decisionmaking body that oversees the Federal Subsistence Management Program.The ten Subsistence Regional Advisory Councils provide recommendations and information to the Board, review policies and management plans, provide a public forum, develop proposals, evaluate current and anticipated subsistence needs, appoint members to the National Park Service subsistence resource commissions, and perform other duties required by the Board. The Councils make recommendations to the Board regarding proposed changes to fish and wildlife regulations; management plans; policies, standards, and guidelines; determinations of customary and traditional use of subsistence resources; fisheries research projects; determinations of rural status; subsistence use allocations; and other matters related to subsistence take of fish and wildlife. The Council meets at least twice each calendar year; however, individual members represent the Council and the Secretaries to their constituency throughout the year and may be called upon by the Board at any time to serve on a committee or working group. Council chairs attend at least two Board meetings a year to represent the recommendations of their Council and provide knowledge and advice to the Board. 6842e8c2-1721-47d7-8f7e-f532e49ae4c4 Recommandations Not Available a901652b-7c2c-4e93-a30a-3fca46915d7c Make, Accept, Implement 8346e2ad-bde8-4348-b09f-5f78860e4f82 44c6281e-c6f0-4be6-9e8d-0b4377e5bbaf Recommendations Made Number Southcentral Alaska Subsistence Regional Advisory Council Department of the Interior Unspecified n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 In FY 2011, the Council made 6 recommendations to the Board regarding funding of Fisheries Monitoring Program proposed projects, 1 recommendation on a wildlife closure review, 1 recommendation for a change to its charter, 1 recommendation on the composition of the Board, and 1 recommendation on the Memorandum of Understanding between the Board and the State of Alaska.
