Grants to Alberta nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and schools in eligible regions for preventative social services for local communities. Funding may be used for short term projects and events or for projects with ongoing operational costs. Applicants must be located in the County of Grande Prairie No. 1.

To qualify for support under this program, the proposed project must meet the following requirements:

  • Promote, encourage, and practice voluntarism and the use of volunteers
  • Be of a preventive nature in order to:
    • Enhance, strengthen, and stabilize family and community life
    • Improve the ability of persons to identify and act on their own social needs
    • Help prevent family or community social breakdown
    • Prevent the development of a crisis that may require major intervention or rehabilitative measures in the event that the early symptoms of a social breakdown occur
  • Provide services on the basis of clearly identified social needs, with clearly defined goals.

Types of Support

  1. Special Project Grant Applications - for projects that are short-term and not part of the operational costs of the organization. Projects requests in this category tend to be for special events or single endeavors, rather than ongoing services. They should be less than 12 months in duration and not require permanent staff.  Please request a special project application form.
  2. Operating Grant Applications - for projects or programs that entail ongoing operational costs. Project requests in this category tend to be for offsetting deficits in the base/operating costs of providing an existing service.
