HSAB Board

Ten projects offered by local not-for-profit and registered charitable organizations have received an investment of $190,000 in grant funding from Chestermere Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) and the United Way Chestermere Partnership.

“We are excited to continue building amazing partnerships with our local agencies who provide the essential social supports for individuals, families, and communities that need them,” says Danielle Fermin, Manager of Community Support Services for the City of Chestermere. “Awarding these grants represents a huge investment in our community and in our valued partners.” 


The 2020 Human Services Advisory Board grant cheques were presented on January 8 to:

United Way Funding - $50,000

1. Accredited Supports to the Community: $8,000 for the Healthy Families Home Visitation Program.

2. Camp Chestermere: $14,237.20 for the Helping All Campers Succeed 1:1 Program.

3. Camp Chestermere: $8,525.60 for a Volunteer Mentorship Program Coordinator.

4. Junior Achievement of Southern Alberta: $5,000 for Financial Literacy Classes for Chestermere Youth.

5. Synergy: $14,237.20 for the Resiliency Project.


FCSS Funding - $140,000

1. Calgary Rural Primary Care Network: $15,300 for the Seniors Connect Program.

2. Camp Chestermere: $13,360 for the CLTD Teen Leadership Program.

4. Prairie Waters Elementary: $9,060 for the Awakening Passions Project.

5. Synergy: $92,280 for the It Takes a Youth to Raise a Village Program.

The funding was awarded through the City’s Human Service Advisory Board (HSAB) and 11 applications were received requesting a total of $428,517.60.

The Board membership is made up of two City Council representatives and six experienced volunteers from the community. Every year, the board is tasked with allocating the FCSS and United Way 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.

“The newly-funded projects will complement the Board’s goals of creating inclusive and engaged communities, positive development of children and youth, and overall social wellbeing in Chestermere," adds Fermin.

The Human Services Advisory Board grants are distributed annually and applications for 2021 project funding will be available in June. To view full details on the above projects, click here.
