•The creation of a Tiny Home kit specifically designed for villages in our region to meet immediate needs related to the prevention and management of COVID 19.
•Expand the kit to include the necessary components and directions to make the Tiny Home an appropriate dwelling for our region: the home will be a high efficiency energy rated home, able to be heated with a small Toyo direct vent heater, with HRV (heat recovery ventilation). The goal is harnessing technological innovation to make small home construction work in a harsh, extreme and unconventional environment in an efficient and cost-effective way.
•Developing the rural economy of the nine villages in the Middle Kuskokwim /Aniak sub-region by supporting a rural workforce in a region with chronic joblessness and improving quality of life for more than 28+ rural communities by supplying a lower cost source of housing kits and providing jobs.
This project will:
Provide needed homes for isolation and quarantine to communities with no existing options, which is essential to controlling and stopping the spread of COVID 19.
Offer delivery on the Kuskokwim River by both ice road and barge so construction can commence as soon as weather allows
Provide a prototype of an affordable, energy-efficient design that can provide much-needed housing
Project Budget: $838,180

The closing date for accepting proposals is November 15, 2021 – 5 PM Alaska Standard Time
There is a deadline (postmarked by 5/21/21 or uploaded by 5pm 5/28/21) and you must certify that you and your family “incurred a negative impact on their ability to access subsistence fishery resources in 2020 that was directly and/or indirectly related to COVID-19.”
Release Date Release Number March 24, 2021 HQ-21-071 WASHINGTON — In early April, FEMA will begin providing financial assistance for funeral expenses incurred after Jan. 20, 2020 for deaths related to coronavirus (COVID-19) to help ease some of the financial stress and burden caused by the pandemic. The policy was finalized today, and FEMA is now moving rapidly to implement this funeral assistance program nationwide.
“At FEMA, our mission is to help people before, during and after disasters,” said Acting FEMA Administrator Bob Fenton. “The COVID-19 pandemic has caused immense grief for so many people. Although we cannot change what has happened, we affirm our commitment to help with funeral and burial expenses that many families did not anticipate.”
To be eligible for COVID-19 funeral assistance, the policy states:
The applicant must be a U.S. citizen, non-citizen national, or qualified alien who incurred funeral expenses after Jan. 20, 2020 for a death attributed to COVID-19.
If multiple individuals contributed toward funeral expenses, they should apply under a single application as applicant and co-applicant. FEMA will also consider documentation from other individuals not listed as the applicant and co-applicant who may have incurred funeral expenses as part of the registration for the deceased individual.
An applicant may apply for multiple deceased individuals.
The COVID-19-related death must have occurred in the United States, including the U.S. territories and the District of Columbia.
This assistance is limited to a maximum financial amount of $9,000 per funeral and a maximum of $35,500 per application.
Funeral assistance is intended to assist with expenses for funeral services and interment or cremation.
In the coming weeks, a dedicated 800 number will be established to help individuals who apply. In the meantime, potential applicants are encouraged to start gathering the following documentation:
An official death certificate that attributes the death to COVID-19 and shows that the death occurred in the United States. The death certificate mush indicate the death “may have been caused by” or “was likely the result of” COVID-19 or COVID-19-like symptoms. Similar phrases that indicate a high likelihood of COVID-19 are considered sufficient attribution.
Funeral expense documents (receipts, funeral home contract, etc.) that include the applicant’s name, the deceased individual’s name, the amount of funeral expenses and dates the funeral expenses were incurred.
Proof of funds received from other sources specifically for use toward funeral costs. Funeral assistance may not duplicate benefits received from burial or funeral insurance, financial assistance received from voluntary agencies, federal/state/local/tribal/territorial government programs or agencies, or other sources.
