  • 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
