Section 93. Determination of social unit

3 AAC 130.093. Determination of social unit

(a) Persons residing in a place in the unorganized borough are considered to be a social unit for the purposes of state aid to unincorporated communities under AS 29.60.140 if the following criteria are met:

(1) the geographic area in which the persons reside is not disproportionate in size to that number of persons; in determining whether this standard has been met the director will consider the physical topography of the area, the use of the land, land ownership patterns, and other factors that could affect population density; an area with a population density of at least 14 persons per square mile is considered to have met this standard;

(2) persons residing in that area are a discrete and identifiable unit in determining whether this standard has been met, the director will consider school enrollment, sources of employment, voter registration, and the permanency of dwelling units; if the area has at least one commercial establishment, and if persons residing in the area do so in permanent dwelling units and their children are enrolled in an operating school in or near the area, this standard is considered to have been met.

(b) Persons residing in the following places in the unorganized borough are not considered to be a social unit for purposes of eligibility for an entitlement under AS 29.60.140 :

(1) a place where public access is restricted, including restrictions on the right to move to the place and reside there;

(2) a place that is contiguous to a municipality and is dependent upon the municipality to the extent that it exists only because the municipality exists;

(3) a place provided by an employer which is populated totally by persons who are required to reside there as a condition of their employment and who do not consider the place to be their permanent place of residence.
