5. Who are the State Resource Agencies?

The State of Alaska has three agencies primarily responsible for managing its natural resources and uses of those resources. These resource agencies have permitting authorities for specific activities. If your project requires a permit(s) from only one state resource agency, that agency coordinates the consistency review process. Your project will most likely require one or more permits from at least one resource agency. The state resource agencies include:

  • Department of Natural Resources (DNR) manages state-owned land and natural resources, including sales and leases.
  • Department of Fish and Game (DFG) manages the state's fish and wildlife resources and their habitats.
  • Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) serves to safeguard the public health and environment from human uses.
