Alaska Center for Rural Collaboration
A Community of Rural Business Resources
The Alaska Center for Rural Collaboration (ACRC) supports the success and growth of businesses in Rural Alaska by leveraging from within our community of rural businesses resources at the UAA Business Enterprise Institute. Funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce, Minority Business Development Agency, our mission is to serve as a hub for Alaska Natives and individuals in Rural Alaska looking to start, grow, or sell a business.
ACRC's mission is to enhance competiveness of rural Alaska’s existing businesses by increasing access to existing Alaska based services, support partnerships and collaborations to leverage available resources, programs, and leaders, and develop business and community capacities through innovative economic development programming.
