Bookmark and Share

In alignment with its 10-year Plan to End Homelessness, the Alberta Government has committed approximately $60 million to community-based organizations in seven Alberta cities, an increase of $12.3 million or 26 per cent over last year. Funding will help provide permanent supportive housing programs and other services.

Alberta’s 10-year Plan to End Homelessness completed its third year in March 2012. More than 6,000 formerly homeless people, including 1,255 families, now have a safe home with support to remain housed. The overall budget to support Alberta’s homeless population this year is $110 million, which includes funding from the Outreach Support Services Initiative.
