What is ICAP?

The ICDBG CARES Assistance Program (ICAP)  assists eligible participants affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Funds must be used to provide assistance to prepare, prevent, and respond to COVID-19 exposure. Assistance can include rent, mortgage, internet access for school age children, child care, utilities, food, emergency housing, transportation, and personal protective equipment (PPE).

The ICDBG CARES Assistance Program funding is made available through a grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Where can I apply?

Due to the COVID-19, we request applications and documents be faxed to (907) 793-3394 or emailed to elg@citci.org.

Applications can also be accepted at CITC’s Nat’uh Service Center at 3600 San Jeronimo Drive in Anchorage if you do not have access to email or fax. There is a document drop box outside of the building near the main entrance, or documents can be dropped off in-person with reception on the 1st floor.

What is the Eligibility?
