TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE (TA)
Technical assistance is available for ANA grant applicants and for funded grantees.
TA is delivered in two ways:
• Electronic technical assistance (ETA) is provided virtually-by phone, email, teleconference, or other electronic means.
• Onsite TA is provided face-to-face. One of the Alaska Region’s TA specialists will come to visit your project.

We help provide technical assistance with your community-based project. We help you prepare for the challenges, navigate the process, and manage your projects after acquisition. We can also help organizations re-evaluate and prepare if they were not awarded.

This type of electronic technical assistance (eTA) is provided to prospective applicants in the planning and development of a project concept consistent with ANA’s mission to promote self-sufficiency and cultural preservation. PPD eTA may include topics such as garnering community involvement in project design and developing internal capacities for administering federal grants.
The Alaska T/TA Center can provide up to 16 hours of PPD eTA to potential Alaskan grantees who have not previously received ANA funding in the last five years or that have not received substantial federal funding exceeding $500,000, as evidenced by audit submissions to the Federal Audit Clearinghouse.
Pre-Application (Pre-App) eTA
Applicants receive an in-depth review of their draft application prior to being submitted to ANA. Pre-Application eTA is provided throughout the year; however, Pre-Application eTA is concentrated around application due date periods. To ensure adequate time to review your project, please request eTA as soon as possible. For Pre-Application eTA, ANA requires that the application is at least 75% complete.
