Competitive solicitations for grants will be posted on the State of Alaska Online Public Notice System.

DHSS grants are administered electronically via GEMS. GEMS has re-engineered the way DHSS manages all of its outbound operating and capital grants. GEMS was designed to improve the DHSS grant process, to simplify and unify procedures across Divisions, reduce administrative burdens for the State and grantees, and enhance communication to improve user satisfaction. It includes features such as payment tracking and accounting, online grant application submissions, grantee performance tracking, management reporting, and forward capability to be integrated with other State systems as they come on line. 

DHSS manages grants in accordance with: 7 AAC 78, Grant Regulations and 7 AAC 81 grant services for individuals. You can view these sections of the Alaska Administrative Code and all State of Alaska regulations at the Department of Law, Document Library & Legal Resources, or online at the Alaska Administrative Code.
