Grants to Alaska non-profit organizations that operate a wide variety of quality, innovative recreation programs. The purpose of these grants is to provide financial assistance to non-profits to insure that comprehensive and diverse recreation programs and activities are made available to the community. For this grant program recreation is to be defined as:

* Leisure time activities that contribute to healthful living.
* Activities that enhance motor and social skills.
* Activities that emphasize participation and skill building.
* Activities that instill positive personality characteristics.
* Activities that expand one's interests and increases the quality of life.

Eligible programs fall into one or more of the following categories:
I. Enable citizens to participate in recreation activities. Grant funds will be specifically used to provide scholarships to individuals, or directly result in a quantifiable fee reduction to the participant.

II. Expand existing recreational programming. The grant funded program will fill a need in the community that cannot be met by the Municipality as effectively or efficiently, or is not currently being met by any other agency in the community.

III. Depending on the level of funding available, the following will be considered on a limited basis:
A. Innovative unique programs requiring seed money.
B. One-time special recreation opportunity for the community. Additional grant funds will not be solicited in the future.

Grants are for direct program expenses only, such as program supplies, equipment or facility rental for program activity, program staff wages (to a limited degree), program travel expenses within the Anchorage area, etc.
