Social Framework Community Grants

The Social Framework Community Grants program provides financial support to not-for-profit groups and organizations that are meeting the social service needs of Strathcona County residents. Recipients demonstrate collaboration and use of the principles of the Strathcona County Social Framework. Funding decisions are guided by the Social Framework Community Grants guidelines and the Social Framework Community Grants Policy

Grants are provided in two categories: Core Grants and Collaboration Grants 

Core funding: To support the social not-for-profit sector to provide prevention and early intervention supports in Strathcona County and to contribute to the outcomes of the Strathcona County Social Framework. 

Collaboration funding: To support the not-for-profit sector to mobilize partnerships and collective resources to address community-wide social issues.   

Organizations may hold one core grant and be the fiscal agent for one collaboration grant at a time. 

Family and Community Services administers the grants program. Please email with any questions.
