Alaska Native Corporation (ANC)

What is an ANC?

The Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) of 1972 offered an alternative to the Indian reservation system in the Lower 48. When ANCSA was signed into law on December 18, 1971, it required each of the 12 newly formed regions to create a for-profit corporation. These Alaska Native Corporations (ANCs) are wholly owned by Native Alaskan shareholders. The ANCs, and their respective subsidiaries, are certified as socially and economically disadvantaged business entities and, as such, are afforded special considerations under the Small Business Act and the Federal Acquisitions Regulations (FAR).
