During the summer of 2009 Koyukuk/Nowitna National Wildlife Refuge personnel completely re-roofed six government houses.  The deferred maintenance project was completed by refuge staff and seasonal hires, including two America Reinvestment and Recovery Act funded youth hires.  Youth were hired through STEP, Student Temporary Employment Program.  The project was estimated to cost $300,000 if contracted out, but by doing the project force account, it cost less than $65,000 and provided much needed local jobs.
