The AlaskaTribes website is dedicated to providing resources and information regarding tribal courts and participation in state court proceedings.
The Fair Housing Project
Alaska Legal Services Corporation’s Fair Housing Project is Alaska’s only statewide full-service fair housing organization. The project works to eliminate housing discrimination and to ensure equal housing opportunity for all people in Alaska through education, outreach, public policy initiatives, and enforcement. Services are provided to members of all protected classes, with special emphasis placed upon under-served areas and populations including Alaska Natives; immigrants; residents who are non-English speaking or have limited English proficiency; rural residents; persons with disabilities; homeless individuals; and persons residing in areas with large concentrations of people of color. All fair housing services are provided free of charge. There are no income eligibility requirements.
Alaska Free Legal Answers
Alaska Free Legal Answers is a free web-based service where you can get answers to legal questions if you meet the income requirements. Once you create an account, you can post your civil legal question so a volunteer attorney can respond to your question by email. You may ask up to three civil legal questions a year. It may take up to 30 days for a response. If it appears that your question cannot be answered online, you may be referred to a local legal service agency to assist you with your legal issue.
