$200,000 in grants available to community social support programs

Call for Proposals HSAB Grants

Charities and not-for-profit organizations serving Chestermere are eligible for funding 

Chestermere’s Human Services Advisory Board (HSAB) will soon be awarding up to $200,000 in grants to social service programs that target the most critical needs in our community and will make a significant difference in the lives of Chestermere residents.

A streamlined application process is available to encourage local not-for-profit and registered charity organizations to seek this grant funding through Chestermere Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) and the United Way/Chestermere Partnership.

“Our goal is to invest in programs focusing on service delivery through prevention, early intervention and community development services,” says Marla Polachek, Team Lead for Community Support Services for the City of Chestermere. “These programs should complement the Board’s goals of creating healthy, vibrant, connected and engaged neighbourhoods, communities, individuals and families, as well as contribute to overall positive mental health in Chestermere.”

The HSAB membership is made up of two City Council representatives, six experienced volunteers from the community, and Chestermere Community Support Services staff. The board is tasked with allocating 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.

Proposals are welcome until Wednesday, September 30 and the proposal information package is available on the City’s website. Applicants may also request the proposal documents via e-mail to

Proposals will be reviewed and funds awarded based on the strength of the proposal, which should:

  • Identify the community need
  • Define the program design and approach in addressing social issues
  • Outline all research and current partnerships, and;
  • Provide a detailed plan on how the grant funding will be used.

Grants will be awarded for a funding period from January to December, 2021. The deadline for applications is Wednesday, September 30, 2020 at 4:00 p.m.
