Here’s an opportunity to help Alaska women build their own skills and work with girls in Alaska Native communities. Groups of five or more women can do this. You will need a nonprofit or fiscal sponsor. Grants funded through the ForGood Fund and the Ford Foundation will help women create girl-centered programs and a weekly talking circle. It’s all through the Indigenous Adolescent Girls’ Empowerment Network, or IMAGEN.

They will distribute up to $100,000 through approximately 4-7 awards of between $7,000-$40,000 each.

Strengthening native girls’ protection and safety: Reclaiming matrilineal traditions through girl-centered programming.

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.

Alaska Full Faith and Credit Training and Technical Assistance Initiative Call for Concept Papers

Applications due:  September 2nd  [11:59pm ET]  

Project Background

On June 28, 2019, Attorney General W illiam P. Barr declared a law enforcement emergency in rural Alaska. He directed DOJ to deploy additional resources to respond to this emergency. Alaska is home to some of the most remote communities in all of America, including 229 federally recognized tribes. This geographic isolation contributes to law enforcement problems not seen anywhere else in our nation. The lack of law enforcement resourc es results in a high violent crime rate, especially in Alaska Native communities.

In response to the emergency declaration, OVW will award one grant for $275,000 through its Alaska Full Faith and Credit Training and Technical Assistance Initiative for training and technical assistance for state and local law enforc ement, prosecutors and other government attorneys, and court personnel on enforc ement of tribal protection orders. In addition, the grantee will provide training and technical assistance for tribal courts and communities on issuanc e and enforcement of protection orders.
