Emergency funding

Charities, not-for-profits and civil society

On March 17, 2020, the Alberta government announced additional emergency funding to charities, not-for-profits and civil society organizations to support their COVID-19 response.

Funding has been provided to over 430 charities, not-for-profits, food banks and civil society organizations across the province. Successful grant recipients are providing services to address the social well-being of those most affected by COVID-19 and the measures implemented to limit the spread of the virus.

A portion of the funding was allotted to food banks and community organizations to support food supply efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic. This funding helps ensure safe food distribution and secure access to food for vulnerable Albertans.
