Community Development Quota (CDQ) Program

The Community Development Quota (CDQ) Program is administered through NOAA's National Marine Fisheries Service. The State of Alaska performs the Decennial Review.

The Community Development Quota Program began in December of 1992 with the goal of promoting fisheries related economic development in western Alaska. The program is a federal fisheries program that involves eligible communities who have formed regional organizations, referred to as CDQ groups.

For specific information on the CDQ program, please visit NOAA Fisheries at
