Nine Haines nonprofit groups are seeking $62,600 worth of grant money from the Haines Borough.

While the borough has $65,000 set aside to allocate to nonprofit organizations in 2017, the question is whether all nine qualify for specific pools of Haines money.

The $65,000 consists of $32,500 from the borough’s general fund, $15,000 from its medical services area fund, and $17,500 from its tourism and economic development fund.

The nine applicants include the Southeast Alaska State Fair seeking $17,000, the Takshanuk Watershed Council seeking $10,000, and the Chilkat Valley Preschool seeking $7,000.

Southeast Alaska Senior Services has applied for $6,600. Southeast Alaska Independent Living has requested $6,500, while Haines Friends of Recycling wants $5,000.

The Alaska Avalanche Information Center has asked for $5,000. The Alaska Arts Confluence has requested $3,000, while the Haines Dolphins swim team is asking for $2,500.

A committee will recommend to the borough assembly on Nov. 9 how the money should be allocated. The committee consists of Mayor Jan Hill, borough deputy clerk Alekka Fullerton, and assembly members Mike Case, Tresham Gregg and Heather Lende.
