Grant Writing Help

Alaska’s Grant Writing Pool

The grant writing groups listed on this page have had success with securing government grants and working with organizations in Alaska. They have all submitted information we believe is important to consider when selecting a grant writer. This list is provided for your convenience. Inclusion in this list of grant writers should not be considered an endorsement by the ARPA Alaska website. If you would like to be added to the list, please contact Rachel Morse at

More information and resources are coming in cooperation with our ARPA partner, The Foraker Group.
