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


We are currently processing applications submitted by the 4/30 (Commercial sectors) and 5/28 (Subsistence user) deadlines. Due to the large number of applications received it will take us some time before we are able to determine final allocations.


Those applications identified with errors and/or omissions will be contacted upon review. Applications submitted as such will be granted a 4-week grace period or amend or to respond to clarifying questions needed to process your claim.


We have NOT disbursed relief payments at this time. It is anticipated that Alaska CARES relief will be disbursed in late early-mid October.  You will ONLY be contacted should there be an error/omission or we have questions regarding your application.
