Spread the love

The City of Edmonton is pleased to announce the recipients of Community Safety and Well-Being (CSWB) funding through the Early Intervention / Intervention and Collaboration grant programs to help advance the goals of the City’s Community Safety and Well-Being Strategy.


Intended as one-time funding, these two CSWB grant programs will support local community organizations working to make Edmonton a safer, more inclusive and equitable city. Early Intervention / Intervention and Collaboration funding addresses and reduces pressing challenges related to the CSWB pillars of Safe and Inclusive Spaces, Well-being, Crime Prevention and Crisis Intervention and Poverty. Collaboration funding intends to enhance existing or establish new collaborations or partnerships to achieve the goals of the CSWB strategy.


“As a city committed to advancing and improving community safety and well-being, I am happy to congratulate and recognize all the recipients of this community safety and well-being grant funding from the City,” said Mayor Amarjeet Sohi. “This funding will go to organizations working to address social issues and enhance or start new partnerships in the community, helping to make Edmonton more safe, connected and welcoming for all.”


A total of 122 applications were received, and of those, 27 recipients were selected, with a total of $5 million in grant funding awarded. Grant recipients were recognized today at an event hosted at the Terra Centre for Teen Parents with Deputy Mayor Michael Janz on hand to speak to guests and congratulate recipients.


“Terra serves approximately 1,000 teen parents and children each year, so having this opportunity to strengthen our Mental Health supports will make a significant impact on many young people with complex issues,” said Karen Mottershead, Executive Director, Terra Centre for Teen Parents. “We are grateful to receive funding from the City of Edmonton’s Community Safety and Well-Being grant that will help our teen parent families build stronger futures for their families and a stronger community for us all.”
