The Alaska Blue Economy Center has partnered with the Alaska Center for Energy and Power and the Center for Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Commercialization to offer $125,000 in grant technical assistance support for up to 20 Alaska-based organizations interested in soliciting federal and foundation funding that directly benefits our coastal communities, particularly in the areas of mariculture and energy, and innovation within those sectors. All applicants to the new Grant Technical Assistance Program Round 1 will receive a free hour of grant coaching. Awardees will receive 15-100 hours of professional support services for enhanced proposal planning, development and administrative support from Grant Management Associates, a consulting service that has more than a 90% success rate on grant applications they prepare. Applications will be accepted between Tuesday, Jan. 22 and Monday, Feb. 19, 2024. For more details, take a look at the ABEC website.
