Social services funding grant for COVID-19

The Alberta Government is providing funding to municipalities, 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.

The City of Airdrie is accepting funding applications for initial assessment and will then submit them to the Family and Community Support Services Association of Alberta (FCSSAA).

Applicants (charitable and non-profit organizations) are those who support a range of services needed such as:

  • at-home help for seniors,
  • crisis and helplines,
  • coordination of food security issues,
  • emotional and mental health counselling; or
  • coordination of any other identified community gaps or issues.

Applicants ideally should provide services to the Airdrie community. Full details are outlined in the Social Services Support for COVID-19 Funding Criteria

If your organization meets the above criteria, please download and complete the COVID-19 Funding Request Form and email it to social.planning@airdrie.ca. If you prefer to use a word document, please email us directly requesting the Funding Request Form as a word document. 

Please do not send funding request forms to the Family and Community Support Services Association of Alberta (FCSSAA). The FCSSAA will be your point of contact if you receive approval. The approval process is determined by the Provincial FCSS office and not locally.

All projects must adhere to government recommended procedures and standards pertaining to COVID-19.

Funding request forms are currently being accepted and we ask those interested to submit the COVID-19 Funding Request Form as soon as possible. 

If you have any questions, please contact social.planning@airdrie.ca
