Addressing Rural and Remote Homelessness - Service Canada’s Homelessness Partnering Strategy

ARDN is responsible for delivering Service Canada’s Homelessness Partnering Strategy (HPS) Rural and Remote Homelessness funding for Alberta. Beginning in 2013, we awarded financial support to eight projects to provide Albertans in rural and remote communities with increased access to the support and services that prevent and reduce homelessness. This was a result of receiving over $500,000 from the Government of Canada’s Homelessness Partnering Strategy. In 2014, we received an additional $2.4 million from Service Canada to fund an additional 11 communities for projects ranging from two to five years in length. In 2016, ARDN received an amendment to that funding of nearly $1 million, which allowed our Regional Advisory Board to add another seven projects across the province. Currently, there are 14 active HPS projects being managed by the ARDN. This funding has also allowed ARDN to research how rural homelessness contributes to the urban issue.
