FCSS Framework and Funding Process

The Family & Community Support Services (FCSS) program provides financial support for the delivery of preventive social services. The City of Lethbridge participates in this joint municipal/provincial cost‐sharing grant with the Province of Alberta, and must ensure that all expenditures made with these funds are eligible under the Family and Community Support Services Act and Regulations.

The City of Lethbridge FCSS focus is on investment in prevention, early intervention and community and development.  The majority of the funding received from the Province is directed to programming provided by not‐for-profit agencies.  The Community & Social Development Committee of Council:

  • Ensures an effective and appropriate process is operational for the allocation of funds,
  • Monitors progress and outcomes of funded social initiatives within the community
