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 steward 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 25 agencies, which prioritize those who are experiencing homelessness, have complex needs, as well as specific programs for Indigenous Peoples, families, youth and women.

Accessing Program & Project Funding

The Calgary Homeless Foundation partners with and funds agencies to help Calgary achieve Functional Zero homelessness, and in doing so together, we will improve the quality of life for individuals, families and communities. Funding and grants are awarded based on the quality of proposals received and the contribution to Calgary’s homeless-serving system-of-care.

In addition, the Calgary Homeless Foundation conducts various research, evaluation, and related projects to ensure optimization of data, inform processes, and create opportunities for innovation.

We fund both programs and projects through various public, competitive, and accountable 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, grant, and project opportunities available. These opportunities will be posted on this page as they are released.
