Each Alaska Farm Bureau Chapter is eligible for a grant up to $2,000. The grant should be used for one of the following:
- To increase membership in your Chapter.
- To promote Alaska agriculture or mariculture.
- To promote the Alaska Farm Bureau
Members of each Chapter determine what project they want funding for during your local Chapter meeting. Only one application per chapter is to be submitted.
The deadline for submission is May 1st.
The request should be from an officer of the Chapter and this will be the person that will be responsible for submitting the final grant documentation. The grant must be completed within 12 months.
There is no actual application form. Just write a letter or e-mail describing the project, explain what you will be using the funds for, and the project completion date.
Chapters are to certify that the project is completed and account for or describe the total cost of the project, including any funds that your Chapter contributed. Certification may be in the form of a letter or e-mail. Digital photographs of the completed projects are requested and appreciated, but not required.
The $2,000 will be advanced shortly after the project is approved. If all of the funds are not used, any remaining funds are to be returned to the Alaska Farm Bureau when the project is completed.
Chapters that have not completed their projects by April 1st of the following year shall return the $2,000 grant advance to the Alaska Farm Bureau.
Application letters or e-mails stating the grant project request and the final completion letters or e-mails should be sent to the Alaska Farm Bureau at P.O. Box 760 – Delta Junction, AK 99737 or to [email protected]
