The State of Alaska participates in a variety of federal grant programs focused on the protection of habitat, resource values, public access and other public interests. The Departments of Natural Resources and Fish and Game are coordinating their efforts in working with partners, developing grant proposals, and implementing grants through these programs.
The following grant programs are available through the State and Federal governments. For more information explore the links below. We encourage anyone interested in proposing a project under one of these programs to contact the State as early as possible, at least two months prior to submitting a grant application so that we can work together to create a competitive proposal.
