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 in contribution to the long history of journalistic stenography, decoding the bureaucratese and laying out the goody take.
Some Fridays are fatter than others, but this one, at nearly $32 million, skews more Rubenesque than svelte. The biggest single winner this week is the Ralph Wien Memorial Airport, in the Northwest Alaska hub city of Kotzebue, which received more than a $10 million grant for runway construction thanks to the U.S. Department of Transportation. The U.S. Department of Justice was also pretty generous this week, granting more than $7 million to government, tribal and community agencies across the state.
How much did your community or employer receive? Read on.
