Palliative and end-of-life care grant fund

Value

$11 million has been allocated for one-time grant funding to advance palliative and end-of life care in Alberta.

Description

We recognize that access to appropriate and timely palliative and end-of-life care is important. This is why the Alberta government committed $20 million for palliative and end-of-life care initiatives over a 4-year period to address these priorities:

  • raise public awareness of palliative care and how and when to access it
  • develop effective caregiver supports to support Albertans in their home and community
  • establish and implement palliative care education, training, and standards for health professionals
  • continue to shift from hospital to community-based home and hospice care

Eligible Applicants

Eligible applicants must be a legal entity located in Alberta including:

  • incorporated non-profit organizations or registered charities
  • indigenous organizations
  • post-secondary institutions
  • schools and school boards
  • municipalities
  • incorporated businesses

Eligible Expenses

Eligible applicants must demonstrate that their proposed project aligns with the following criteria:

  1. Project targets at least one of the following palliative and end-of-life care priority areas that support:
    • earlier access
    • education and training
    • community supports and services
    • research and innovation
  2. The project should target at least one of the following priority population groups:
    • pediatric population
    • palliative clients with a non-cancer diagnosis
    • palliative clients experiencing frailty or dementia
    • indigenous population

    • persons facing structural barriers to access, for example homelessness, poverty
    • new immigrants or those with language or cultural barriers to access
    • persons living in rural or remote communities
