Grantee Resources

TCF has compiled a list of resources, which serve to benefit individuals, organizations and tribal entities who are seeking funding or assistance with developing programs in their community focused on education, culture and Alaska Native artists. We are also happy to discuss grant-writing plans with tribal and Alaska Native organizations- contact us for more information.

Alaska Native Artist Resource Workbook

The Alaska State Council on the Arts, in partnership with The CIRI Foundation, is pleased to provide the Alaska Native Artist Resource Workbook to assist Alaska Native artists in furthering their artistic careers. 

On January 14, 2020 the Alaska State Council on the Arts’ office re-opened after funding was reinstated August 19, 2019.  Please call ASCA’s main line at 907-269-6610 for assistance with grants and programs.

Grant Writing Handbook

The purpose of this Grant Writing Handbook is to offer suggestions and clarify the process of writing a grant proposal for arts funding. It is adapted from the First Peoples’ Cultural Council of British Columbia to provide information and resources specific to Alaskan artists. We are grateful for this partnership enabling us to increase our resources to perpetuate and promote the unique artistic and cultural traditions of Alaska Native peoples!
