Final Application Window for 2021 CAB and FCSS Grants Closes October 31

The final application window for the 2021 Community Assistance Board Grant and the Family & Community Support Services Grant closes Sunday, October 31.

The Community Assistance Board (CAB) helps the MD allocate budgeted funding assistance for community-focused opportunities, initiatives and programming. 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 are eligible to apply for this funding.

The Family & Community Support Services (FCSS) is a partnership between local municipal governments, Métis Settlements and the Alberta government. This 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. All FCSS funding allocations will be approved by MD Council.
