Maintain a healthy work-life balance while contributing to a community where Alaskans with disabilities have equal opportunity to live, learn, work and play!

The Disability Law Center of Alaska, a nonprofit law firm advocating on behalf of Alaskans with disabilities, seeks a Database and Grant Specialist with strong organization and people skills.

This role is unique in that we do not anticipate finding a candidate with prior experience specific to our database, nor our grant reporting. Instead, we will be looking for someone who can bring their natural curiosity, creative problem-solving skills, and love of learning to this detail-focused role. To be clear: this is not a position in which you will be writing grant applications.

This may be the job for you if you pride yourself on being able to:

  • Anticipate and meet deadlines,
  • Work well both independently or collaboratively;
  • Think critically;
  • Write persuasively.

Although working directly with the public is not the main focus of this position, it is a part of this position. As such, a genuine commitment to social justice for underserved populations, with an awareness of and sensitivity to people with disabilities is very important.


The firm salary offering for this position is $35k + benefits including health, dental, vision, 403(b) plan, and generous paid personal leave.

Insurance Coverage: We offer group health (medical, dental, vision) life and short term disability insurance coverage to regular full-time employees. 100% of the cost of coverage is paid for eligible employees. Dependent health coverage is available on a cost shared basis with the agency under the group plan. Insurance coverage begins as soon as approved by the insurance company.

Time Off: Regular full-time employees receive 13 paid holidays. Because we value participation in voting, all regular full-time employees who are registered to vote may take up to 2 hours of administrative leave with pay to vote on election days.

Personal Leave is a combined leave that includes sick leave and annual leave.  Personal Leave is earned beginning with the first full pay period of employment. Employees must be on the payroll for a minimum of thirty 30 calendar days before they can take leave. Leave accrues during this period after thirty 30 days, an employee is entitled to take Personal Leave as it accrues. The rate at which Personal Leave is earned is:

  • During the first year of employment 15 hours per month;
  • During the second year of employment 18.75 hours per month;
  • During the third year and each year after 22.5 hours per month.
