The Cochrane Family & Community Support Services (FCSS) Advisory Board presented a detailed list of grant requests to Town Council at their meeting Monday.

Council approved a total of $99,000 in grants to local groups that fit FCSS and United Way mandates.

Twelve groups were approved for grants:

  • Big Brothers Big Sisters of Calgary and Area: $6700 for mentoring in Cochrane
  • Boys & Girls Club of Cochrane: $17,500 for after school programs for youth
  • Variety - The Children’s Charity of Alberta Association $2900 for "Just Like You" Disability Awareness Education Program
  • Western Rocky View Family & Community Resource Centre: $16,800 for Community Support Program
  • Seniors for Kids Society: $13,200 for Senior Mentoring Program
  • Seniors on the Bow: $4800 for Cochrane Seniors Workshop Series
  • Big Hill Haven: $7900 for Domestic Violence Coordinated Community Response
  • Cochrane and Area Victim Services Society (CAVS): $8800 for Victim Services
  • Cochrane Society for Housing Options (CSHO): $7900 for Housing Resource Worker
  • Helping Hands Society of Cochrane and Area: $10,000
  • Western Rocky View Family & Community Resource Centre: $2250 for the Community Access Resource (CAR) Program
  • Tapestry of Women Conference: $250

Grants were also approved for the PLC Counselling Program, Roots of Empathy and the Youth Counselling Program, but due to changes in Alberta Children’s Services funding, funds are being held until the Family Resource Network grant has been awarded. The FCSS Advisory Board will return to Council with these funding recommendations at a later date.

Cochrane FCSS and the United Way work together on grant reviews to minimize the application and reporting process. Fifteen funding applications were received for a total of $193,574 in requests for $120,000 available ($70,000 United Way Partnership and $50,000 in the Town’s approved FCSS budget).
