COVID Community Roots Program

In 2020, we introduced the COVID Community Roots Program specifically to provide support for our most vulnerable communities through the COVID-19 crisis. Through grants of up to $5,000, Alberta Blue Cross®, Alberta Recreation and Parks Association and Communities ChooseWell came together to support the social, mental, emotional and physical well-being of vulnerable populations in rural, remote and secondary communities across Alberta.

In 2020, we received 156 applications and awarded a total of $195,000 to 45 projects in 38 different communities across Alberta.

Based on the demand for this program, we extended it through the first half of 2021 and ultimately awarded a total of $262,000 in funding to 59 diverse projects in communities across the province.
