Daaga’ Awards Deadline January 6
Funding for Healthy, Sober Community Projects
Individuals and organizations with projects that promote healthy and sober Alaska Native communities are invited to apply for a 2016 – 2017 Daaga’ Award from Doyon, Limited. Applications will be accepted until 5 p.m. AKST on Friday, January 6, 2017. The application and a list of the 2014 – 2015 winners are available on the Doyon website.
The Athabascan word Daaga’ means “get up, move, do something,” which embodies the spirit of the Daaga’ Awards. The proposed projects should support the values of the Daaga’ Awards, which include:
- Contributing to the healing thatlies within the local people
- Utilizing the strength of traditional values
- Encouraging programs that integrate spiritual, social and economic needs of the communities
A limited number of awards are available. Proposals may be granted up to $3,000 per funding period. The awarded amount is dependent on the number of proposals received and the need of the program as described in the application and supporting materials.
Applicants may not always receive the full $3,000. For this reason, Daaga’ should be considered supplemental funding and not be the only support sought when funding a program.
