Shareholder Enrichment Updates: Ahtna Career And Training Support

Ahtna offers supplemental financial assistance for career and training support items and fees such as childcare, union dues, licenses, haircuts, glasses, housing and transportation. Shareholders should first check with CRNA/CITC/MSTC/Village Councils as the funding is meant to supplement their programs. To learn more, contact Shareholder Enrichment at (907) 868-8250 (Tracy Parent – Anchorage), (907) 822-3476 (Starr Knighten – Glennallen) or email

To qualify for rental assistance from the Ahtna Career Assistance Program, the qualified* applicant must have new permanent employment (new employment is verified with employer by Shareholder Enrichment). Once approved, we will request a W-9 from your rental agent to mail your rent check. Please note, rent requests are processed as quickly as we can, but we also recommend reaching out to other agencies for rental assistance as well if needed.
