Alaska Children’s Trust Tier 1 – Community Based Child Abuse & Neglect Prevention Grants Applications Open February 8th, 2021 - March 19th, 2021

The Alaska Children’s Trust Grant Cycle is currently accepting applications.

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 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. ACT considers as a priority projects that support an approach of primary prevention and strengthening families. ACT values services offered in geographic areas with a demonstrated high need and leveraging new funding sources for child abuse prevention.
