As part of the Unorganized Borough of Alaska, Hoonah-Angoon Census Area has no borough seat or local government. As a result of re-defined boundaries starting in 1990 and continuing through 2007, the population has dwindled to 2,145. Around 235 veterans currently live in Hoonah-Angoon. Located in the southeastern Alaska Panhandle, the city of Hoonah is the only “first-class-city” on the Chichagof Island (fifth largest island in the U.S.). The area was largely influenced by the Northwest Trading Company trading in fur with the local Tlingit’s. Commercial fishing, similar to much of Alaska, the local economy is heavily impacted by the commercial fishing industry. The mainstays of the area’s economy are fishing as well as fish processing.
The Hoonah Angoon Census Area is 35 percent Native American, with many speaking Tlingit. The median household value is $208,100, and the median household income is $48,942.
Veteran property owners qualify for a disability property tax exemption of up to the first $150,000 in assessed value, contingent upon a disability rating of 100 percent and the presence of less than $12,000 in annual net income.
