110 Navajo Chapters

The ASC program’s purposes are to provide planning services and guidance to 110 Navajo Chapters specifically relating to project planning, infrastructure development, community land use planning, and guidance in the implementation of Five Management System (FMS) and policies.

The designated supervising Chapter Official provides Direct Local Supervision of the Community Service Coordinator (CSC) at each Navajo Chapter. In the absence of a designated Direct Local Supervisor, the SPPS has full direct supervisory responsibility until designation changes.

The CSC supervises the Chapter’s Accounts Maintenance Specialist (AMS) and Public Employment Program (PEP) participants for each Navajo Chapter.

Currently, there are 45 LGA Certified Chapters which are managed and operated locally.
