Starting today, school boards, municipalities and non-profits in the Red Deer and District FCSS region – including the partner municipalities of The City of Red Deer, Red Deer County, Town of Bowden, Town of Penhold, Village of Delburne and Village of Elnora - can apply for funding for prevention programs.

The Red Deer & District Family & Community Support Services (FCSS) Board is issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) today. Eligible participants that are involved with the delivery of preventive social services to residents in the Red Deer and District FCSS region are invited to submit proposals for funding. Funding through this RPF will be allocated to successful proponents for three years (2018-2020).

The FCSS mandate is to provide preventive social programming that enhances the social well-being of individuals and families through promotion or intervention strategies provided at the earliest opportunity. In-school mentoring, preschool wellness and seniors outreach programs are among some of the many programs currently funded by FCSS.

Applications will be accepted until 4:00 p.m. Thursday, March 9, 2017. Complete details are available at the Alberta Purchasing Connection website, www.purchasingconnection.ca.
