Accessing Program & Project Funding

Calgary Homeless Foundation partners with community serving agencies, consultants, researchers, and other stakeholders 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.

We fund both programs and projects through various public, competitive, and accountable procurement methods such as a Request for Proposals (RFP), grant funding opportunities 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.

If you have any questions regarding opportunities for partnership, grants, or funding, please contact us at funding@calgaryhomeless.com.  In addition, if you want to be notified of new opportunities please email us and request to be added to our mail list.

Request for Proposals – REF#22087 - (OPEN)

Closing Date: May, 24, 2022

Addiction Transitional Housing Services

Further Information

CHF’s current portfolio of supportive housing programs is often focused on long-term support. Current data and recent community feedback have demonstrated that the Homeless-Serving System of Care can benefit from Transitional Housing focusing on addiction support for the adult sector.

Through an Expression of Interest (EOI) process conducted in March of 2022 (EOI# 22083), CHF received significant input on possible designs of this potential new program, focused on meeting the needs of those who have experienced or are experiencing homelessness. Such a program is not currently offered within Calgary’s Homeless Serving System of Care. Therefore, the RFP is based on salient inputs from EOI submissions*.

This RFP is seeking an agency partner to pilot a new program type that will utilize transitional housing supports with specific supports for people experiencing substance addictions in order to accomplish recovery outcomes at the individual level and increased flow-through outcomes at the system level.

*Please note, while CHF actively invites previous applicants to the EOI to apply, application to the EOI (#22083) is not a required prerequisite to apply to this RFP. Thus, CHF welcomes all eligible Service Providers to consider this opportunity.

Please see the RFP documents above for additional information.  Interested Proponents are asked to submit a notice of intent to CHF with your intention to apply to this RFP by May 16, 2022. Notice can be found here: Notice of Intent

There are currently no closed RFPs.
