Direct Social Services Grant Program
Direct Social Services grants are designed to support programs whose primary focus is reducing conditions that create vulnerability for residents. Direct Social Services grants fund core staff positions that support the effective and efficient delivery of programs. A minimum of 85% of a DSS grant must be used for staff salary and benefit expenses - the reamining 15% may be applied to program, administrative or other eligibile expenses.
Please read the information sheet below for more information. You can see what types of projects have received a DSS grant over the past 2 years by reviewing Council reports at 2019 Social Grants and 2018 Social Grants
