The Alaska Children’s Trust Grant Cycle is now accepting applications. Applications must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Friday, April 7, 2017.
Alaska Children’s Trust (ACT) recognizes that our future is influenced greatly by the types and level of trauma our children are exposed to and the amount of resiliency they are equipped with to handle these traumas. Alaska has struggled with some of the highest rates (per capita) of child abuse and neglect in the nation for decades. Organizations throughout Alaska working to prevent child abuse and neglect are invited to apply for mini grants (up to $10,000) from ACT’s competitive grant cycle. Applications are accepted from qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, or equivalent organizations located in the state of Alaska. Equivalent organizations may include tribes, local or state governments, schools, or Regional Educational Attendance Areas. Grant funding will be awarded for primary prevention only. ACT values services offered in geographic areas with a demonstrated high need and leveraging new funding sources for child abuse prevention.
