National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska (NPR-A) Impact Grant Program
Alaska Division of Community and Regional Affairs
To help mitigate adverse impacts related to oil and gas development within the NPR-A.
Applicant and/or Project Eligibility Requirements
Municipalities must be in Alaska, within the National Petroleum Reserve, and demonstrate present or foreseeable future impact from oil or gas exploration, production, or transportation activities in the NPR-A.
This is broad funding for a range of capital and operational needs. Past recipients have received funding for energy efficiency improvements, building upgrades and retrofits, fleet improvements, job training programs, and renovations of municipal and community facilities. For new construction or renovations, consider all-electric construction, high efficiency systems, and including on-site clean energy systems to support facility operations and reduce long-term fuel costs and resource consumption.
As required by Alaska Statute, priority is given to those communities experiencing or will experience the most direct or severe impact from oil and gas development.
Expected number of allocations based upon FY2021 projects recommended for funding. Prior years have funded between 3 and 30 projects.
