Veterans Transportation Grant Awarded to the Inter-Island Ferry Authority

Effective September 15, 2019, the IFA is authorized to issue Passenger ticketing to qualifying Veterans traveling in conjunction with their healthcare needs.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has renewed a transportation grant to the State of Alaska Department of Military & Veterans Affairs, and the State has advised the Inter-Island Ferry Authority that the IFA has been accepted into the Veteran Federal Transportation Grant Program again this year!

Present your current Alaska Driver License or ID Card with the VA endorsement, Armed Forces of the United States ID Card {Retiree}, 100% Disabled Veterans (DAV) or VA Healthcare Card to qualify for this no-cost to Veterans program. Examples of these IDs are shown here.

Escorts will be required to get prior authorization to travel from Forrest Powell; he is the Grant Manager and Veterans can contact him at 907-334-0872 or

Contact IFA General Manager Ronald Curtis
for more information at 907-401-3564 or

As usual the Prince of Wales VFW branch encourages Veterans to walk on as often as possible and use vehicle passes sparingly in order that the grant last longer for other vets!
