Human Services Advisory Grants

The City of Chestermere has developed a joint application process for the streamlined administration of Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) and United Way/Chestermere Partnership Funding. This process contributes to effectively allocating resources and achieving desired social outcomes. The application has been developed with prevention, early intervention and community development as foundational program delivery strategies for reaching our overarching goals and priority outcomes.

The Social Investment Framework supports and guides Administration and the Human Services Advisory and Grant Funding Adjudication Committee to coordinate funding and shape social programs offered to individuals, families, and community groups who call Chestermere home. Resources can be invested through a combination of direct service and grants to community service providers to achieve as many of the social priorities of the community.
