City’s Human Services Advisory Board awards more than $170,000 in grants

Human Services Advisory Board grants

Twelve projects created by local not-for-profit and registered charitable organizations have received an investment of $171,961 in grant funding from Chestermere Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) and the United Way Chestermere Partnership.

The funding was awarded by the Chestermere Human Services Advisory Board (HSAB) after a total of 20 proposals were received for consideration.

“I can speak for myself and all of our other board members when I say that, I have been deeply rewarded by the positive outcomes and successes of these local programs and agencies who have benefited from Human Service Advisory Board grant programs,” says Board Chair Scot Caithness.

Every year, the Board is tasked with allocating the FCSS and United Way grant funds to proposals that contribute to the overall quality of life in Chestermere and achieve one or more of the overarching goals and priority outcomes described in the Social Investment Framework.

These newly-funded projects will complement the Board’s goals of advancing equity and social inclusion through:

• Vibrant, Connected and Engaged Neighbourhoods and Communities;

• Healthy, Connected and Engaged Individuals and Families;

• Positive Mental Health.
