Grants of up to $3,000 to Alaska Interior Native individuals and organizations for programs that promote healthy, drug and alcohol-free communities. These grants reflect the funding source's belief that communities are stronger and healthier when Native values are alive and traditional skills are prized, such as beadwork, artwork, hunting, and trapping.
Proposed projects should support the values of the Daaga’ Awards, which include contributing to the healing that lies within the local people, utilizing the strength of traditional values, and encouraging programs that integrate spiritual, social and economic needs of the communities.
Please note the following important information about each of the values of the Daaga’ Awards:
The source of healing lies in the ability of local people to help themselves.
- Events/programs should also look into other sources of financial support as Daaga’ awards are limited and new applicants will be given preference.
People should utilize the strength of traditional values to focus on a healthy vision of the future.
- Events/programs should promote traditional values (e.g. traditional artwork instruction, learning beadwork, hunting, trapping, as well as promoting drug and alcohol-free lifestyles).
People should work together to promote programs that integrate the spiritual, social, and economic needs of Native people.
- Events/programs should be well advertised to surrounding areas to include the greatest number of shareholders.
- Doyon requires a final report after the proposed project to include in publications to shareholders.

The deadline for the 2019 Daaga’ Awards is Wednesday, January 9, 2019, at 5 p.m. AKST.
Applicants may not always receive the full $3,000. For this reason, Daaga’ should be considered supplemental funding and not be the only support sought when funding a program.
