ARDN Rural and Remote Homelessness

The Alberta Rural Development Network (ARDN) is currently accepting funding applications from organizations interested in obtaining financial assistance to achieve activities specific to meeting the needs of homeless and at-risk people living in rural and remote areas in the province of Alberta. Project activities must take place outside of the “Seven Cities” in Alberta (Edmonton, Calgary, Red Deer, Lethbridge, Grande Prairie, Medicine Hat, and Fort McMurray). While other projects may be considered, priority will be given to projects that provide supports and services that:

  • reduce individuals’ risk of homelessness
  • ensure stable living arrangements for those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless
  • provide support to help ensure that people who are homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless can stabilize their circumstances and move beyond emergency needs
  • introduce supports to improve health, parenting, education, and employment outcomes
  • create longer‑term solutions, especially supports and tools that help develop stable living arrangements, as well as facilitate permanent arrangements and economic integration for homeless individuals
  • utilize or encourage a “Housing First” approach
  • prepare a community to address homelessness
