ANCHORAGE—The Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority has approved more than $2.1 million in grants to organizations across the state in the second quarter of fiscal year 2019. 

The Trust grants, on average, $20 million a year to organizations across Alaska that serve Trust beneficiaries.

“At the Trust, we are committed to improving the lives and circumstances of our beneficiaries,” said Trust CEO Mike Abbott. “Administering these grants demonstrates that commitment, and helps fulfill our mission to serve Alaskans who experience mental illness, developmental disabilities, chronic alcohol or drug addiction, Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia, and traumatic brain injuries.”
