The Department of Health and Social Services is the designated State agency to receive Title V funds in the State of Alaska. The Department anticipates awarding 2 sub-grants for State fiscal year 2010, with the expectation of some level of renewal funding for up to 36 months. DJJ is committed to giving priority in funding to evidence-based programs and activities and, to that end, all RFPs issued, express the need for the support and use of model programs.
