What We Do


Grant Applications

The Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation’s (HANF’s) purpose is to support Alaska Native people, Tribes, and Tribal Health Organizations in pursuit of Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium’s (ANTHC’s) vision that Alaska Native people are the healthiest in the world. HANF does this through grant making in support of Alaska Native people under four initiatives:

  • Healthy Patients includes areas such as behavioral health, cancer care, palliative care, emergency clothing, and education.
  • Healthy Kids includes areas such as child life specialists, camps, family and birthing services, and toy funds for Alaska Native children. 
  • Healthy Communities includes areas such as community wellness and prevention, dental health, elder care, and healthy homes. 
  • Area of Greatest Need

Based on the needs of Alaska Native people, preference is given to projects that align with HANF’s current priorities: improved access to care, children, behavioral health, and rural healthcare.
