Tier 1 Grant Program
Child Abuse & Neglect Prevention Grants
(up to $10,000)

Apply Now Through: Friday, 13 March 2020 (5pm)

Alaska Children’s Trust 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 through our Tier 1 process. 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.

For more information, guidelines, and our online application, go to Alaska Children’s Trust website.
