Every Friday Alaska's congressional delegation touts how much federal grant and loan funding it has helped bring home. And Alaska Dispatch does its part to contribute to the long history of journalistic stenography. In effect, we take out the funky code, and sometimes some of the breathless descriptions, and pretty much lay out the goodies received for the week.
Some Fridays are fatter than others, but this one skews more towards the lean, particularly compared to what Alaska reaped at the end of June. Then, Alaska took home more than $1.8 billion. This week state organizations received a modest $12,191,240.
This week's biggest winner was the Alaska Department of Transportation, which receive $8 million for environmental mitigation at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport.
Read on and see what your community or employer may have received.
