Social Services Funding

The Alberta Government is providing $30 million to municipalities, charitable and non-profit organizations to provide help to individuals, seniors, families and other vulnerable Albertans who are isolated or impacted by measures to contain COVD-19.

Funding will be distributed to these organizations through local FCSS Programs and will support a range of services needed from at home help for seniors, crisis and helplines, food security issues, emotional and mental health counselling or any other identified community issues.

Ineligible expenses include but are not limited to the following:
• Any expense NOT related to addressing the social well-being of those most vulnerable due to COVID-19.
• Offering direct assistance in the form of money or shelter.
• Being primarily rehabilitative or health-focused in nature.
