Alaska Children’s Trust Tier 1 – Parenting & Child Development Educational Programs Application Deadline has passed

The Alaska Children’s Trust Grant Cycle is not currently accepting applications at this time.

The Alaska Children’s Trust (ACT) supports a two-generation methodology in our work to ensure children grow up in safe, stable and nurturing environments. ACT recognizes parents are their children’s first and most important teachers, and that investment in strong parenting is a critical strategy for ensuring that all children grow up thriving.

In partnership with the State of Alaska, Alaska Children’s Trust (ACT) is soliciting proposals to provide access to high-quality parenting and child development educational programs (i.e. parenting classes) in 13 identified communities. The goal of the funding is to help equip parents with the knowledge, skills and tools they need to be successful.

Grantees are expected to utilize evidence based or informed and culturally responsive parent education, with a focus on measurable gains. A family centered approach recognizes the usefulness of a range of subject, in addition to parenting classes; including financial literacy, leadership skills, goal setting, stress reduction, systems navigation, traditional and cultural practices, and other skill-builders provided to parents that will promote resilience.

Total Award Available: $5,000 to $25,000 (per year for 3 years)
