Beginning on March 9, 2020, the Matanuska-Susitna Borough will be soliciting applications from non-profit agencies for the FY2021/2022 Human Services Community Matching Grant Program. Funding for the borough Human Services Community Matching Grant program is based on the availability of state funding. The Borough will not know how much funding, or if funding will be available until the end of June 2020, or later.
The amount that may be requested for this program is limited to $50,000 per agency, per year. Applicants should be prepared to accept fewer dollars than requested and should keep in mind that if the state does not fund the program then no sub-grants will be awarded.
All grant funds must be expended before June 30, 2021. Recipients must agree to comply with all state, local, and federal requirements for the use of Human Services Community Matching Grant funds. All year one grant funds must be expended before June 30, 2021.
Applicants are encouraged to use the most recent version of the Community Needs Assessment that can be found by clicking here.
The goal of the HSMG program is to provide high quality, cost-efficient, and community-driven health and human services to residents of the Matanuska-Susitna Borough. Grant funds may only be used for services that are necessary to prevent or alleviate serious mental or physical hardship.
