Denali Commission: Key Grant Programs

Agency Description

Established in 1998, the Denali Commission is an independent federal agency based in Anchorage, Alaska, that provides critical utilities, infrastructure, and economic inter-agency support to Alaska’s remote communities in America’s largest state.

The Denali Commission and the U.S. Department of Transportation share a vision for preserved and expanded surface transportation solutions for Alaskan citizens and Alaska Native peoples who traverse the state’s system of predominately rural, local roads every day.

Discretionary Grant Programs

The Denali Commission provides grant funding to Tribal, federal, state, and local government partners for projects which improve the effectiveness and efficiency of government services, develop a well-trained labor force employed in a diversified and sustainable economy, and ensure the operation and maintenance of Alaska’s basic infrastructure.

Grant proposals use the Standard Application for Federal Assistance (SF-424), and there is no stated deadline to apply. As a small agency, funding varies and is subject to availability.

To obtain supplemental funding, the Denali Commission encourages applicants to check for other available Federal grants as well as grants awarded by the State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development.
