Family & Community Support Services
Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) is a funding partnership between local governments and the Province of Alberta on an 80/20 share basis. The funding is used to support and develop locally driven, preventive social services initiatives.
FCSS emphasizes local decision-making for programming, based on the belief that communities have the desire, energy and resources to build community capacity. Each municipality determines how the dollars they receive should be allocated to best meet the needs of their community so FCSS programs are unique to each community.
