Program Information

Federal Small Communities Fund (SCF)


The Federal SCF assists communities with populations under 100,000 to complete infrastructure projects that contribute to economic growth, a cleaner environment and stronger communities. Under the SCF, Alberta will be allocated $94 million by the Federal Government and the Province will match the federal contribution giving municipalities a total of $188 million over 10 years.

Eligible applicants include Alberta municipalities, improvement districts, Metis Settlements, and the Townsite of Redwood Meadows. The SCF project selection process is competitive; applications are evaluated against established criteria and projects with the highest scores are recommended for funding approval. The application deadline was April 2, 2015 and the program is now closed to new applicants. The list of approved projects can be found in the right-hand column.
