The Alberta Government is providing $30-million to 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 COVID-19.
Eligible services must address the social well-being of those most affected by COVID-19 and the measures implemented to limit the spread of the virus.
Those impacted may include seniors, individuals with chronic medical conditions, caregivers, families with children at home and individuals with limited access to supports. Services should align with one or more of the following funding priorities:
- Help people maintain independence, build resiliency and strengthen their ability to cope during the COVID-19 pandemic;
- Provide supports to help sustain people to remain members in the community during the COVID- 19 pandemic;
- Fund civil society organizations to deliver projects for vulnerable Albertans who are in need during the COVID-19 pandemic; and
- Coordinate services and programs to address the social well-being of vulnerable Albertans during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Applications must be submitted to Lethbridge Family Community Social Services (FCSS) who will forward the applications to the Family and Community Support Services Association of Alberta (FCSSAA) for funding approval.
For further details and information along with the application form, organizations can check out the Government of Alberta website.
