Subsidized Rental Housing Utility Deposit (SRHUD) program.
Applications for the Subsidized Rental Housing Utility Deposit (SRHUD) are accepted throughout the year.
General Relief Assistance
General Relief Assistance (GRA) is designed to meet basic needs of Alaskans in emergency situations.
Basic needs include shelter, utilities, food, and clothing. Limited funds for a dignified burial of a deceased needy person may also be provided. The GRA program is 100% state-funded.
Because state funds are limited, the program is used as a last resort in providing basic needs to an individual or household.
GRA is only available if a household's emergency need cannot be met by any other programs or agencies.
Except for burial assistance, payment is limited to a maximum of $120 for each household member. Payments are always provided to a vendor; they are never provided directly to the GRA household.
