Community Safety & Wellness Grant

The Community Safety and Wellness Grant is designed to increase resiliency of vulnerable citizens, ensure basic needs security, enhance community safety, foster relationship building and connection between citizens, community, and programs. Focus areas of the grant need to relate to community safety issues at either the individual, family, peer, neighborhood, or community level.

Through this grant program, The City of Red Deer will allocate $50,000 to support vulnerable citizens, build relationships, support basic needs access and increase the overall safety and wellbeing initiatives in Red Deer that align with the vision and goals of the Community Safety Strategy. Each eligible project may apply for up to $25,000 for the 2024 year.

New to this grant in 2024, previously funded successful projects may be eligible for ongoing funding to build on outcomes achieved in prior years.
