Funding

As the backbone organization of Calgary’s Plan to End Homelessness, we support the sector with the resources to fulfill the Plan’s vision as well as our collective commitment to ensuring Calgary has the necessary resources to support people in need.

We administer funding from the Provincial and Federal Governments for housing with supports programs, support services and one-time projects in support of ending homelessness. This involves:

  • Agreements with orders of government and other donors
  • Preparation and administering requests for proposals and bid processes when funding is available
  • Preparation and monitoring of contracts to the organizations in the community who implement programs and projects

We are able to fund more than 50 programs, delivered by over 30 agencies, which prioritize those who have been homeless for a long time and have complex needs, as well as Indigenous Peoples, families, youth and women.

Accessing Program Funding

The Calgary Homeless Foundation funds agencies in support of Calgary’s Plan to End Homelessness. Funding is awarded based on the quality of proposals received and the contribution to Calgary’s homeless-serving system-of-care.

We fund programs through a Request for Proposal (RFP) process.

From time to time, there are funding opportunities available for programs. These opportunities will be posted on this page as they are released.

We award contracts for activities that support the plan through an Invitation to Bid (ITB) process.
