Get Up, Move, Do Something with Daaga’ Awards
$3,000 Grants Available to Support Drug- and Alcohol-Free Projects

“Get up, move, do something!” This is the meaning of the Athabascan word Daaga’ and the spirit of the annual Doyon, Limited Daaga’ Awards, which provide grants to programs and projects that promote healthy, clean and sober Alaska Native communities.
Proposals for the 2016-2017 Daaga’ Awards will be accepted until the deadline of Friday, January 6, 2017 at 5 p.m. AKST. Applications are available at www.doyon.com.
The proposed projects should support the values of the Daaga’ Awards, which include contributing to the healing that lies within the local people, utilizing the strength of traditional values, and 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.
