The City’s Human Services Advisory Board awards community partners with over $170,000 in grants

Human Services Advisory Board Grant Recipients

Eleven programs offered by local organizations will receive an investment of $173,394 in grant funding from Chestermere Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) and the United Way Chestermere Partnership for 2023.

This funding was awarded through the City’s Human Service Advisory Board (HSAB), which is made up of two City Council representatives and seven experienced volunteers from the community. In total 15 applications were received requesting $338,993.24, almost double the amount of available funds. 

Each year, the Board is tasked with allocating these FCSS and United Way grant funds to proposals that contribute to shaping social programs offered to individuals, families, and community groups within Chestermere and advance the equity and social inclusion goals described in the Social Investment Framework. 

At the end of 2022 the new Human Services Advisory and Grant Funding Adjudication Committee was formed, which includes the City of Chestermere grant funding stream known as Community Grants.

“On behalf of myself and fellow committee members, it is truly rewarding to see the positive impact and successes of the local programs and agencies who have benefited from the Human Services Advisory Board grant funding,” says Committee Chair Scot Caithness. 

 2023 HSAB grant funds are being awarded to:

United Way Funding - $43,394

2. Camp Chestermere: $9,388 for the CLTD Teen Leadership Program.

3. Junior Achievement of Southern Alberta: $5,000 for Financial Literacy, Work Readiness, and Entrepreneurship for Chestermere Youth.

4. Synergy: $15,187.00 for the SHOUT Boys/Girls Program.

5. Trellis Society: $5,819 for Six Week Circle Time in the Park 0–5 Years Old Program.

FCSS Funding - $130,000

1. Camp Chestermere: $24,888 for the Helping All Campers Succeed Program.

2. Camp Chestermere: $9,880 for the Volunteer Mentorship Program Coordinator.

3. Calgary Immigrant Women’s Association: $34,000 for Counselling Supports for Immigrant Families.

4. Chestermere Food Bank: $10,000 for the Community Kitchen.
