The Alaska Native Heritage Center has been awarded a $1.25 million grant to launch Unguwat: Resilience & Connection, a new Indigenous wellness project to serve young Alaska Native people.
This year’s land sale auction includes forty-seven parcels in locations across Southcentral, Southeast, and Interior Alaska that will be sold to the highest bidder.
Their National Recovery Month campaign aims to educate Alaskans on youth substance misuse and mental health concerns.
In addition to opening two COVID-19 testing locations in Eagle River, several Anchorage locations are extending their hours and opening on additional days.
The cutting-edge facility will add another thirty-five new jobs to its existing twenty team members to support Medline’s growing customer base in Alaska. Medline previously operated an Anchorage distribution center one third of the size of its new facility.
Grant funds are from Alaska’s share of the federal CARES Act and are to be distributed to eligible nonprofit and faith-based organizations to aid in their continued efforts to combat the adverse effects of COVID-19.
