Alaska’s Round 2 CARES Act relief is not yet available


Alaska’s “Round 2” spend plan was approved on 10/26. The Commission is currently drafting applications. It is anticipated that “Round 2” applications will become available in mid-late December 2021.; applicants will need to know their Round 1 relief amounts in order to apply for Round 2 funds.   

Additional guidance will become available once applications have been finalized and approved by ADF&G staff.  For more information regarding Alaska’s Round 1 or Round 2 spend plans, please contact the ADF&G.  Please, if not already doing so, continue to monitor our website for updates. This will be our primary source for publicizing information and updates.

Alaska’s Round 2 Spend Plan – October 26th, 2021


Alaska’s Round 1 application period has closed to all sectors

We are anticipating relief checks being mailed on/or before Friday, December 10th 2021. Given the large number of applications received with errors and/or omissions (nearly 1/3 of the ~8,000 applications received) it regrettably has taken us longer than expected to process and amend applications. Additionally due to recent spend plan amendments made by the Alaska Dept. Fish and Game, a “do not exceed” payment amount was assigned regardless of the number of shares an applicant may be eligible for within the commercial harvester, sport fishing charter, and seafood processing sectors.

Due to the need to calculate and process these final applications, we will not be able to response to your calls or emails surrounding “When will I receive my check?” or “Has my application been received?”. Those who uploaded their applications to our ShareFile site would have received a confirmation and those who mailed their paper applications were encouraged to pay for delivery confirmation and/or tracking. We apologize for this inconvenience.
