Effective April 21, 2020, the Government of Alberta will be temporarily suspending applications for the $30 million in emergency social services funding to charities, not-for-profits and civil society organizations to support their COVID-19 response. The provincial government has received over 600 applications. Current applications are being reviewed, and approvals for urgent requests will occur before reopening intake of applications.
This funding is for local non-profit and charitable organizations to provide and enhance social support for seniors, families, and other vulnerable Edmontonians who are isolated or impacted by measures to contain COVID-19. These organizations will support a range of services needed from at-home help for seniors, crisis and help-lines, food security issues, emotional and mental health counselling or any other identified community issues.
Funding is provided by the Government of Alberta, Ministry of Community and Social Services and distributed by the City of Edmonton.
