The Denali Commission’s funding has traditionally included federal congressional appropriations through the Energy and Water appropriations committee. In addition, the Commission also receives funds from sources such as the US Department of Agriculture and from the Trans-Alaska Pipeline Liability trust fund for energy projects. In recent legislation, the Commission acquired new authority within its statute that allows the Commission to accept gifts or donations of services, property or money, from non-federal entities; and the Commission is also able to accept transfers of funds from other Federal agencies to carry out any activities that are authorized in its mission.
