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.
