Transportation Grant

When people are included and participate in their community, good things happen. We believe in supporting transportation opportunities so individuals experiencing transportation barriers can be actively engaged in community life.

The objective of this program is to:
• Help individuals maintain independence
• Help people feel a sense of belonging in their community
• Improve quality of life (attend appointments, social outings, shopping, etc.)

Funding under this program is available to non-profit organizations to provide public transportation and/or accessibility to public buildings for seniors, vulnerable individuals and persons with disabilities.

We are very interested in hearing from those who have the capacity to provide transportation services safely, following Alberta Health recommendations to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Please contact Tanya Byers at Community and Protective Services at 780-723-8613 should you have any questions.The Town of Edson Community and Protective Services Department will be accepting applications for the Transportation Grant until Friday, July 3, 2020.

*Please be aware that we are in the process of developing an updated grant application process for grants awarded by the Town of Edson. This year’s process is a temporary process and is meant as a substitute process until the revamped process is completed.
*All applicants must indicate how they are COVID-19 compliant.
