Tier 1 (Up to $10,000)

Community Based Child Abuse & Neglect Prevention Grants

Alaska Children’s Trust (ACT) recognizes that our future is influenced greatly by the types and level of trauma our children are exposed to and the amount of resilience 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) from ACT's competitive grant cycle. 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.

Alaska Children's Trust (ACT) is dedicated to the prevention of child abuse and neglect. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, political affiliation, or military status, in our programs or activities.
