The Town of Edson allocates this funding based on the needs of the community and evaluation criteria. Town of Edson FCSS is proudly supported by Yellowhead County through the cost-share agreement.

FCSS Grant Applications are for initiatives that are not part of the operational costs of the organization. Grant requests can be for special events, single endeavors, special projects or ongoing services. They should be less than 12 months in duration and not require permanent staff. Please note that applicants may not receive funding to the level requested.

Applications for FCSS Grants can be considered at any time during the year. Organizations are strongly encouraged to raise funds from as many alternate sources as possible, and will be expected to contribute to the total project/program costs described in the proposal.

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 transportation for seniors, vulnerable individuals and persons with disabilities.

Please contact Sarah McDonald at Community and Protective Services at 780-712-3500 should you have any questions. The Town of Edson Community and Protective Services Department will be accepting applications for the Transportation Grant until October 31, 2023.
