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 public calls for application processes when funding is available
- Preparation and monitoring of contracts to the organizations in the community who implement programs and projects
We 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 various public and competitive procurement methods such as a Request for Proposals (RFP), grant requests and other public calls for application processes.
From time to time, there are funding opportunities available for programs. These opportunities will be posted on this page as they are released.
If you want to be notified of new opportunities for funding, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our mailing list.

Understanding flow between Treaty 7 First Nations and Calgary’s Homeless-Serving System of Care
The Calgary Homeless Foundation is currently conducting a Request for Proposal (RFP) process to retain a team of research consultants to provide research into factors that determine flow from Treaty 7 First Nations to Calgary’s Homeless-Serving System of Care (HSSC).
This project, focusing on Treaty 7 Nations, has a three-pronged approach involving the analysis of:
- Housing need and supply;
- Income assistance challenges; and
- Jurisdiction (i.e., which order of government is responsible for addressing any gaps).
Treaty 7 includes the following communities: Blood Tribe, Piikani Nation, Siksika Nation, Stoney
Tribe (Bearspaw, Chiniki and Wesley) and Tsuu’tina Nation.
