AS 29.60.140. State Aid to Unincorporated Communities.

(a) The department shall pay to each unincorporated community an entitlement each fiscal year to be used for a public purpose. The department with advice from the Department of Law shall determine whether there is in each unincorporated community an incorporated nonprofit entity or a Native village council that will agree to receive and spend the entitlement. If there is more than one qualified entity in an unincorporated community, the department shall pay the money under the entitlement to the entity that the department finds most qualified to receive and spend the money. The department may not pay money under an entitlement to a Native village council unless the council waives immunity from suit for claims arising out of activities of the council related to the entitlement. A waiver of immunity from suit under this subsection must be on a form provided by the Department of Law. If there is no qualified incorporated nonprofit entity or Native village council in an unincorporated community that is willing to receive money under an entitlement, the entitlement for that unincorporated community may not be paid. Neither this subsection nor any action taken under it enlarges or diminishes the governmental authority or jurisdiction of a Native village council. If at least $41,472,000 is appropriated for all entitlements under AS 29.60.010 - 29.60.310 for a fiscal year, the entitlement for each unincorporated community under this subsection for that year equals $40,000. Otherwise, the entitlement equals $25,000.

(b) In this section "unincorporated community" means a place in the unorganized borough that is not incorporated as a city and in which 25 or more persons reside as a social unit.
