Apply before it’s too late! The application window for both the Community Assistance Grant and the Family & Community Support Services Grant will close on Friday, July 30.
Community Assistance Grant
The Community Assistance Board (CAB) helps the MD allocate budgeted funding assistance for community-focused opportunities, initiatives and programming. The next CAB grant opportunity closes July 30.
All not-for-profit societies, community groups, clubs and individuals that offer a direct benefit to the citizens of Lesser Slave River, and that align with the MD’s community values (youth, seniors, fellowship, compassion, generosity, spirit, leadership and volunteerism) are eligible to apply for community assistance funding from the MD. Learn more about the community assistance grant in the CAB section of the website.
Family & Community Support Services Grant
The Family & Community Support Services (FCSS) is a partnership between local municipal governments, Métis Settlements and the Government of Alberta. The partnership provides provincial funding that is matched with local tax dollars on an 80/20 share basis. The funding is then used to support and develop locally-driven, preventive social services initiatives. The next FCSS grant opportunity closes July 30.
Applicants must be eligible under the Family and Community Support Services Act and Regulation. All FCSS funding allocations will be approved by Lesser Slave River Council. Preference will be given to registered volunteer not-for-profit organizations that:
- Promote the social development of children and their families
- Enrich and strengthen family life by developing skills in people to function more effectively within their own environment
- Enhance the quality of life of the retired and semi-retired
- Promote, encourage, and support volunteer work in the community
- Inform the public of available services.
