Grants to Alaska Tribes, Native villages, nonprofit organizations, and Tribal governing bodies for projects that improve the governing capacity of local Tribal villages. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to four weeks to complete. Funding is intended to support programs addressing governance, economic development, and social development. The purpose of the SEDS-AK program is to promote social and economic self-sufficiency for Alaska Natives. The SEDS-AK program provides funding for projects designed to enhance governance and programmatic management capacity for Alaska Native villages to empower them to promote social and economic self-sufficiency for Alaska Natives.
The SEDS-AK supports the principle that social and economic development is interrelated and essential for the growth of thriving Native communities. ANA is interested in supporting community-driven projects that build and strengthen core governmental capacity in the areas of administration and project management at the Alaska Native Village level.
SEDS-AK projects focus on one or more of the following three inter-related concepts, which form a foundation for self-sufficiency. (1) Social Development that supports local access to, control of, and coordination with programs and services that safeguard the health, well-being, and culture of Alaska Native peoples. (2) Economic Development that fosters the development of stable, diversified local economies and economic activities that provide jobs and business opportunities that promote economic well-being and self-sufficiency in Alaska Native communities. (3) Governance that assists Alaska Native tribes, Alaska Native organizations and Alaska Native village governments to increase their ability to enhance their administrative infrastructure and capacity to develop and enforce laws, regulations, codes, and policies that reflect and promote the interests of community members.
Due to the recent Congressional passage of the Indian Community Economic Enhancement Act of 2020, ANA will prioritize funding for applications seeking assistance for the following: (1) the development of a tribal code or courts system for purposes of economic development, including commercial codes, training for court personnel, and the development of non-profit subsidiaries or other tribal business structures; (2) the development of a native community development financial institution, including training and administrative expenses; and (3) the development of a tribal master plan for community and economic development and infrastructure. The new economic development legislative priorities will be incorporated into new program areas of interest for the SEDS-AK FOA. Applications that propose a legislative priority project should include the economic priority area(s) in the project goal, all objectives and indicators as reflected in the project’s framework, project approach, OWP, and outcome tracker. Ten bonus points will be awarded to applications that address one or more of these priority areas.
