FCSS

Family and Community Support Services

Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) receive 80 percent of its funding through a partnership with the Government of Alberta, the remaining 20 percent is provided by the municipality. FCSS serves people by identifying community needs from a grassroots level and programs are constantly in flux because community needs change.

First, under the FCSS program, communities design and deliver social programs that are preventable in nature to promote and enhance well-being among individuals, families and communities. Second, they promote, encourage and facilitate volunteers and the use of volunteers in the community.

The Town endeavours to maximise it programs with the funds available. With funds received through the FCSS program, the Town supports local events and initiatives. Here are a few examples where FCSS funds are expended to support the community:

  • Community events such as Family Day, Canada Day, Meet Your Community, and the Christmas Festival.
  • Programs and classes such as Home Alone, Babysitting Course, Paint classes for Seniors, Block Parties, Volunteer Appreciation, Youth Connect Conference, Citadel Theatre outing for Seniors and much more.

In addition to the local events and initiatives offered, community groups are eligible to apply for program funding through the Town’s FCSS grant application process. Grants are reviewed annually and awarded based on a set criteria and fund availability.
