RurAL CAP Foundation Application

Rural Alaska Community Action Program

The RurAL CAP Foundation funds a limited number of small grants for educational and charitable purposes that focus on low-income people and rural communities. Grants are made in the amount of $500 to $5,000. Eligible applications are considered from 501(c)(3) nonprofit and governmental organizations in rural Alaska which do not have an open grant and which have not received a grant from the Foundation in the prior 12 months.

Applications due:  August 31, 2019

The Foundation’s major interests are to:

  • Provide support to low-income people to expand their capabilities through training and educational opportunities;
  • Provide opportunities for community representatives to participate in forums, workshops, and conferences that protect and enhance cultural traditions and subsistence practices;
  • Strengthen the skills and capacity of local leadership in rural communities; and
  • Promote healthy people, sustainable communities and vibrant cultures.

Examples of the Types of Grants Awarded:

  • Projects that encourage the sharing of knowledge and engage volunteers and community members;
  • Events where community members learn skills for life, such as a youth music camp or Elders teaching youth how to subsistence hunt or fish;
  • Projects that have long-term impacts on a community, such as building a garden or recycling center; and
  • Events that build the capacity of local government, such as workshops on project design and proposal writing. (Foundation funds are often awarded for supplies and transportation costs; funds are typically not awarded to pay stipends to people who might otherwise volunteer or to buy laptops or equipment that benefits only a few.)
  • The Foundation generally doesn’t fund: employee salaries, overhead or indirect, paying wages for work normally done by volunteers (e.g. picking up trash), junk food or soda pop.

Program Description

The Tribal court assessment (“TCA”) evaluates tribal needs and provide tribes with recommendations for improving their operational activities by following the Tribal Court Performance Standards (TCPS), which are modified to meet the specific needs of tribal courts.

It is up to the Tribal Justice Support (TJS) Directorate to conduct tribal court assessments to ensure justice in tribal forums is properly administered. This process involves the TJS assessment team working with the Tribe collecting and observing documents regarding Tribal constitution, Tribal codes, and court procedures. Once the specific needs of each tribal court are highlighted, then the TJS Directorate can provide strategic action plan that involves hands-on training, recommendations and technical assistance to help strengthen the Tribe’s court system.
