      Love this blog. One of my all time best resources for finding communities and non-profits money. Do you have any knowledge of an Alberta equivalent?? I’ve recently relocated and I’m working with a couple community leagues and First Nations groups that are in need of some resources.

        Thanks so much, Matt! I’m sorry to report that I don’t know of a specific blog for Alberta. However, I did a Google search and many resources showed up. Please bear in mind that many of the posts here are valid Canada-wide 🙂 All the best, Fundsblogger

    NOW OPEN: CAI funding for mental illness, problematic substance use and/or unhealed trauma 

    Mental health and substance abuse funding

    The Community Action Initiative (CAI) has now posted a call for letters of intent for proposals to help families with dependent children (including adult children) where one or more members is impacted by mental illness, problematic substance use and/or unhealed trauma.  Approaches should provide for greater connections to either: culture and/or spirituality; or to neighbourhood and community.

    Funding will be allocated in two stages, through two separate competitions. The first stage involves convening work (funded through a convening grant), and provides sufficient funding to bring partners together to work through a more detailed proposal.  Successful LOI applicants will get up to $10,000 as a convening grant.  The LOI deadline is January 27, 2014

    The second stage involves service delivery (funded through our service innovation grant), and will be funded for projects which last from two to three years.  Applicants who receive a CAI convening grant will be invited to apply for up to $200,000 to support implementation of their service innovation proposal.

    CAI funding is intended for projects which are led by non-profit agencies, and/or Aboriginal agencies, and involving partners from many sectors.  If you have received this and are neither a non-profit agency nor an Aboriginal agency, it still may be of interest to you either in forwarding to some of your contacts in these categories, or as a potential partner.

    Please share and re-tweet within interested networks.  If you need help with your proposal, contact a Professional Writer today!
