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. The Trust is proud to partner with many providers, nonprofits, state departments, local governments and tribal organizations to have a positive impact for beneficiaries and the providers that care for them. Grants are awarded throughout the year.

“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.”

Grants in the second quarter of FY 2019 include support for initiatives focusing on, among other topics: housing, workforce training, substance abuse prevention and treatment, and capital improvements. Below is a list of grants awarded.
