Museum, the Kodiak Area Native Association and the Sun’aq Tribe of Kodiak each received money for projects during a recent round of federal funding.
The grants were announced last week by Alaska’s congressional delegation and are among three pages of grant awards that ranged from energy efficiency projects to airport improvements.
The Alutiiq Museum received just over $49,000 to create an electronic catalog of its entire Karluk One collection.
KANA received a U.S. Department of Commerce grant for implementing a comprehensive economic development strategy.
And the Sun’aq Tribe was awarded nearly $340,000 Tribal Government grant.
Our listeners in the St. Paul area will also see some benefits from this large federal grant awards cycle. The Aleut Community of St. Paul Island was awarded nearly $160,000 for a Steller sea lion bio-sampling program.
The Aleut Community received an additional three grants which were awarded specifically to Alaska Native tribal government and communities.
The three grants include: $344,000 to prevent and reduce alcohol and substance-abuse crimes; $425,000 to the Tribal Resource Grant Program; and $537,000 to the Tribal Governments Program.
