Grants to Alberta nonprofit organizations to develop and enhance preventive social service programs that benefit the residents of Lloydminster. Funding is intended to support services that improve the social well being and quality of life for local individuals, families, and communities, and strengthen their ability to prevent and cope in crisis situations.

FCSS serves the whole community by initiating and/or supporting community needs assessments, community planning processes, and developing and implementing projects to address community-wide needs. The provision of community-wide services such as community directories, information and referral services and volunteer centers are examples of FCSS involvement in community development. 

Services provided under a program must:

  • Be of a preventive nature that enhances the social well-being of individuals and families through promotion or intervention strategies provided at the earliest opportunity, and
  • Do one or more of the following:
    1. Help people develop independence, strengthen coping skills and become more resistant to crisis;
    2. Help people develop an awareness of social needs;
    3. Help people develop interpersonal and group skills which enhance constructive relationships among people;
    4. Help people and communities assume responsibility for decisions and actions which affect them; and/or
    5. Provide opportunities for residents to become active participants in the community.

For example, FCSS may provide funding to Boys and Girls Clubs, because they fit the FCSS' criteria of social programs that are preventive in nature with positive social outcomes provided through various activities.  For a detailed list of eligible expenses, see

All applications must be in alignment with a strategic direction, outcome, indicator, and measure question from the FCSS Measures Bank. Programs that target the general community, adults, or families would use the FCSS Measures Bank; programs that target children and youth use the FCSS Children and Youth Measures Bank (see Supporting Documents below). Provincial Priority Measures are preferred.
