Orchards and Food Forests (GROW-OFF) Grant Program 

The Forest Service has awarded funds to the Rural Alaska Community Action Program, Inc. (RurAL CAP) to sub-award grants of $40,000-$60,000 to eight to ten Climate and Economic Justice Screening Tool (CEJST)-designated disadvantaged Alaska communities. For additional eligibility guidelines, please refer to the RFP.

The purpose of this funding is establishing and maintaining community orchards and food forests. RurAL CAP’s Growing Rural Opportunities for Wellness (GROW) Program requests proposals for the GROW-OFF (Orchards and Food Forests) Grant Program from eligible applicants to plant and maintain community orchards or food forests in their communities. GROW-OFF aims to enhance food security, foster community engagement, create economic opportunities, and promote community wellness and environmental sustainability. 


Youth Development and Culture Grant Program

The purpose of the Youth Development and Culture Grant Program is to reduce the disproportionate number of minority youth who come into contact with the juvenile justice system. The Division of Juvenile Justice recognizes the need to collaborate and team with agencies that have the cultural knowledge, community connections and expertise to enhance and strengthen its work with Alaska Native youth, families and communities. The Youth Development and Culture Grant Program targets both a reduction in the disproportionate contact Alaska Native youth have with the juvenile justice system in Alaska, and an increase in the ability of the Alaska Native communities ultimately funded through this program to better develop and manage DHSS grant programs.

RurAL CAP requests proposals for community projects that are innovative and implement either culture activities/camps or youth leadership development.

RurAL CAP anticipates funding 8-12 projects of up to $16,000 per year, with no match required.

Project Timeline: May 31, 2024

FY2024 Note:
The current grant application cycle is closed. Funds from the state will be awarded to RurAL CAP in July. We will review applications and contact applicants when funds become available to sub-award.
