2017 PFD is $1,100

EconomyThe Permanent Fund Dividend amount for 2017 was announced in a press release from the Governor.

"In passing its budget this year, the legislature set permanent fund dividends at $1,100 for each eligible Alaskan—and chose to pay for the $2.5 billion deficit entirely from savings. That leaves only $2 billion in the state’s main savings account—which pays for response to emergencies, like earthquakes, fires, and floods."
