Changes are underway in Unalaska's health care landscape.

About a year ago, the island's two main providers agreed to streamline their services in an effort to avoid duplication, cut costs, and improve access for all community members.

Charles Fagerstrom is health director at the Aleutian Pribilof Islands Association (APIA), which has long provided care to tribal members around the region.

Fagerstrom sat down with KUCB's Laura Kraegel to provide an update on APIA's progress in partnering with the local clinic, Iliuliuk Family and Health Services (IFHS).

With a budget deficit looming, the City of Unalaska won't fully fund this year's grant requests from local nonprofits.

The City Council voted last week to give $1.47 million to 11 community organizations. While that's a 15 percent increase over last year and about $250,000 more than councilors' spending goal, it's still less than the $1.94 million that nonprofits had asked for.
