Community Grants

The Ketchikan Gateway Borough Community Grant Program is designed to support projects and programs that meet the needs and desires of the community of Ketchikan. The Community Grant Program seeks to provide funding in an equitable and consistent manner.

The Borough accepts applications from organizations seeking funding for program, projects and/or services that support and promote at least one of the following areas:

  • Education
  • Animal Protection
  • Economic Development
  • Recreation
  • Transportation

The overall intent of this program is to fund supplemental services and programs that enhance the community and are not currently offered by the Borough. The Borough recognizes the role of these organizations in advancing the above-stated priorities.

A Grant Committee will be appointed annually by the Borough Mayor and confirmed by the Borough Assembly. The committee will be comprised of two Borough Assembly Members and three at-large members of the community. 

These members were appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the Assembly in November 2020:

  • Assembly Member Amanda Pierce
  • Assembly Member Felix Wong
  • Angela Salazar, Member At-Large
  • Margaret Custer, Member At-Large
  • Stephen Bradford, Member At-Large
