Purpose

The GCI Suicide Prevention Grant provides funding for projects and organizations with the goals of reducing the rates of suicide in Alaska and promoting mental wellness through strengthened community and personal connections. Preference will be given to projects that are located in rural Alaska or programs that reach rural communities in Alaska.

Activities should:

  • Result in long term change by creating family, school, and community support systems
  • Help grow or support programs that have already demonstrated success in Alaska or in small communities in the lower 48 states
  • Support programs that have been embraced and that will be sustained by the community
  • Support work that is happening on multiple levels including prevention, intervention, and crisis response
  • Conceived or managed by local entities or by any entity that demonstrates a willingness to work with the local community or be advised and/or guided by local planning
  • Reflects Alaska cultural considerations
