Grants for up to $2,500 per participant to prepare and train Alaskans for construction work. The overall goal of the funding agency is to utilize the skills and talents of the Alaskan citizens to improve and expand infrastructure. The purpose of the available funding is to provide job training to people eighteen years and older living in rural areas of Alaska. Applicants may apply to deliver two types of training projects: Specific training and general training.
Denali Commission Project Specific Training – The first priority is for training that directly supports Commission-related infrastructure projects, leading each training participant directly to employment. This includes construction, operation, and maintenance training for local residents to be employed on Commission infrastructure projects for the Commission’s transportation, energy, economic development, solid waste, health, multi-use facilities, and teacher housing programs. This also includes local management training, leadership, and capacity building training.
Other Public Infrastructure Projects – The second priority is for construction, operation, and maintenance training for other non-Commission funded infrastructure projects, such as airport construction and maintenance, health care, and energy, including renewable energy. This may include local management training, leadership, and capacity building, leading each training participant directly to industry-recognized credentials and employment.
