The Alaska Policy Forum (APF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit statewide think tank based in Anchorage, Alaska. It was founded in 2009. APF conducts "timely, relevant and accurate research and providing free market, Alaskan solutions in the most effective means possible to policymakers at the state and local level." The Forum states that its guiding principles are as follows: "We believe that individual freedom and private property are inextricably linked. We believe that government should be limited, transparent and accountable. We believe in responsible, sustainable development. We believe that free markets offer better solutions than government planning."[1]
