To ensure funds reach small projects in rural Alaska, all applicants must be a nonprofit or governmental organization in rural Alaska or be a project that targets this area to apply.  We ask that all applications provide the application form linked below, a copy of their IRS determination letter and a 1-2 page proposal letter. 

How our process works

Our board and staff meet in the month following the application cutoff date to review the grant applications. Each application will be notified of the board’s decision to fund or not fund the grant request. If an application is received after the cutoff date, it will be kept for consideration in the next award cycle. If the funding is seasonally sensitive, please reach out to our staff.

The board is made up of volunteers who have schedules that may not allow for the applications to be reviewed within the month following the deadline. If you have questions about the status of your application, please submit an email requesting an update.
