REAP will strive to keep this list as updated as possible, and we’ve tried to list the opportunities in order of due date. This is by no means a complete listing of funding opportunities and we have included some that extend to energy efficiency as well as those related to renewable energy. If you know of more opportunities, please call (907) 929-7770 or email katie@REalaska.org.
USDA Rural Business Enterprise Grant: The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development Office in Palmer, Alaska, is accepting applications for the Rural Business Enterprise Grant (RBEG) Program for Fiscal Year 2014.
The primary purpose of the RBEG is to support the development of small and emerging private business enterprises in rural areas (with a population of less than 50,000). In Alaska, the Municipality of Anchorage is the only area where the population exceeds this rural limit. However, applicants based in Anchorage can still apply for funding as long as proposed activities support small business development in rural areas.
Eligible applicants include nonprofits, public bodies (e.g., states, boroughs, cities, townships, and incorporated towns and villages, authorities, and districts), and federally recognized Tribes. The small and emerging private business that derives the benefits from the applicant must have fewer than 50 employees and less than $1 million in gross revenue.
Applications are due by COB on April 10, 2014. Click here for more information.
