Basic Needs Grant Deadline: June 21, 2018 at 5pm AKST

The Alaska Community Foundation (ACF) is now accepting Letters of Interest (LOI) from eligible organizations to support efforts to meet basic human needs of Alaskans. ACF is currently focusing unrestricted grant resources on Health and Wellness activities to ensure that all residents have access to basic needs; i.e. shelter, food, and health. We invite you to submit a proposal to meet this goal.

Key Considerations:

To be considered for funding, proposals must support efforts to meet basic needs in Alaskan communities. In this case, basic needs are defined as fundamental requirements that serve as the foundation for survival. These include but are not limited to programs and projects that help Alaskans access shelter, food, and health.

You may request support for program expansion or creation, general operational support, and capital expenses. ACF is highly interested in innovative programs that are responsive to community needs, partnerships, and collaborative efforts. Lower priority is given to equipment purchase requests, requests to pay staff for existing services, and duplication of existing services.

Grant awards range from $5,000 – $10,000.

Applications must be submitted online. Click on the link below or contact ACF with any questions regarding the online application system at grants@alaskacf.org or 907-334-6700. For more information, please read the grant guidelines below.

Organizations applying must submit their applications by 5:00 pm on Thursday, June 21, 2018
