What We Do
At the Alaska T/TA Center, we work to strengthen the capacity of Native organizations in Alaska to develop, apply for, and manage community-based projects that increase self-sufficiency and achieve ANA’s vision that “Native Communities are Thriving.” As a Resource of the Administration for Native Americans, we can provide you with access to tools, resources, training, and technical assistance. Call our office today to determine your eligibility for funding and technical assistance for your project.

Social and Economic Development (SEDS)
The SEDS program supports the principle that social and economic development are inter-related and essential for the development of healthy, self-sufficient Native American communities. ANA emphasizes social and economic development projects that promote the establishment and maintenance of diversified local economies, the preservation of Native American cultures, and programs and services that safeguard the health and well-being of Native Americans.
Native Languages Preservation and Maintenance
The Native Language Preservation and Maintenance program supports the revitalization of Native American languages to ensure the survival and continuing vitality of these languages and the cultures of native peoples for future generations.
Esther Martinez Immersion
The Esther Martinez Immersion supports the revitalization of Native American languages to ensure the survival and continuing vitality of these languages and the culture of native peoples for future generations. Immersion and Restoration grant funding is awarded in accordance with the Ester Martinez Native American Languages Preservation Act of 2006 to Native American language nests, survival schools, and restoration programs for teachers of Native American languages; and, develops instructional materials for the programs.
Environmental Regulatory Enhancement
In 1990, NAPA was amended to strengthen tribal government capacity to identify, plan, develop, and implement environmental programs that will bolster regulatory efforts in a manner that is consistent with a Tribe’s cultural preservation and natural resource management priorities. Ultimate success in this program will be realized when the applicant’s desired level of environmental quality is acquired and maintained.
The Alaska SEDS Program is focused on community-driven projects designed to grow local economies, strengthen Alaskan Native families, including the preservation of Alaskan Native American cultures, and decrease the high rate of current challenges caused by the lack of community-based businesses, and social and economic infrastructure in Alaskan Native communities.
Native Youth Initiative for Leadership, Empowerment, and Development (I-LEAD)
The purpose of Native Youth Initiative for Leadership, Empowerment, and Development (Native Youth I-LEAD) is to support local community projects that foster Native youth resiliency, and to empower Native youth across four broad domains of activity: (1) Native youth leading (leadership development), (2) Native youth connection (building positive identity, community connection, and social-emotional health), (3) Native youth learning (educational success), and (4) Native youth working (workforce readiness). These domains, combined with promotion of the role of supportive adults, form a framework for inter-related strategies that support capacity building, inter-generational engagement and understandings, and the empowerment and self-development of Native youth.
