When and How to Submit Proposals
Applicants have the option to submit their proposals in one of two ways:

The small demonstration subaward projects must be performed in Alaska, and be for the benefit of tribal communities throughout Alaska.
- Oversee and monitor subgrantees for successful completion of Alaska Native Village-based demonstration projects.
- Provide technical support to subgrantees through peer-to-peer outreach.
- Qualitatively and quantitatively measure and report on the environmental results of the Alaska Tribal Multi-Media small demonstration projects through the subgrants. The subgrantee process should be on a national scale to allow for competitive subgrantee proposals.
