Since federal grants and loans are distributed by individual agencies – all with different guidelines and procedures for program eligibility – finding out specific information as a grant applicant can be challenging. This event will help streamline access to information and provide an invaluable opportunity to speak directly with agency officials. Alaska’s Congressional Delegation is pleased to facilitate this event to help Alaskans obtain grants and loans that address the unique needs of Alaska communities.

The event is free and representatives from Alaska tribes, communities, and nonprofits are welcome to attend; however, space is limited. Participants are encouraged to RSVP by clicking here.
