The Alberta Government is providing $30 million to municipalities, charitable and non-profit organizations to provide social services to individuals, seniors, families and other vulnerable Albertans who are isolated or impacted by measures to contain COVID-19.
These organizations will support a range of services needed from at-home help for seniors, crisis and helplines, food security issues, emotional and mental health counseling or any other identified community issues.
Charitable and non-profit organizations are encouraged to connect directly with their local FCSS program to receive the funding guidelines and grant criteria. FCSS offices will accept the applications on behalf of Community and Social Services and forward them to the Province for deliberation.
For questions, contact Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) at 780-354-4058 or 780-354-4057. Please note organizations may only apply to one FCSS program. If the service proposed will serve multiple municipalities, please apply to one FCSS department only and indicate the geographic areas served. FCSS departments will be consulting with each other on applications received.
FCSS is facilitated at the Town Office, 400 – 10th Street
