Applicants must submit a Letter of Interest prior to applying. Funding is intended to support programs that address high-priority social issues, including homelessness, suicide prevention, hospice, substance abuse, mental health, and relief for victims of abuse. Funded projects will also meet community needs in the areas of health, education, and income stability. Grants will benefit the residents of Juneau.

The Juneau Hope Endowment Fund was established in September 2014 with the intent of supporting nonprofit organizations and government agencies that provide programs and services in the Juneau community to address the social issues indicated above.

In 2015, the City and Borough of Juneau (CBJ) started adding their social service block grant funds to the Hope Fund grant program. Annually, the Foundation will award grants to organizations and agencies that address these social issues, funding the highest priority social service needs in Juneau.
