Calgary Homeless Foundation partners with and funds agencies to help Calgary achieve Functional Zero homelessness, improving 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, Calgary Homeless Foundation conducts various research, evaluation, and related projects to optimize data, inform processes, and to 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.
