Infrastructure for Alaska’s Food Bank Network Grant Opportunity

Deadline for applications: September 26, 2022, 5:00 PM – CLOSED

Grant Request Amount Range: $25,000 to $1,000,000

The State of Alaska awarded Food Bank of Alaska $6 million to bolster Alaska’s statewide anti-hunger network through infrastructure and capacity building projects. There was a competitive grant process to identify which projects will be awarded. This grant opportunity is now closed and awardees have been announced.

We received 81 applications totaling over $28 million in requests. We had a rigorous review process and utilized community partners and funders as our external review committee. Thank you to Rasmuson Foundation, Mat-Su Health Foundation, RurAL Cap, Alaska Food Policy Council, Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium, and Alaska Commercial Company for their help in reviewing these grant recommendations.

Here are the organizations awarded grants:

We want to thank all the applicants for their time. Due to the high volume of requests, we were only able to fund a fraction of the worthy projects that were submitted. We encourage those not funded to reach out to us to explore other funding and partnership opportunities.
