FASD Family/Caregiver Support Group Subsidies

Applications for subsidies up to $4,500 will be accepted from now until October 24, 2018 at noon.  These subsidies will be used to create new, or build upon current FASD support group activities within communities. There will be two cycles of funding available through this project.  The first cycle begins this fall and runs to March 2019, and information about the second cycle will be shared in early 2019.
