Participation Fund

Did you know that financial assistance for Town of Devon run programs is available through the Participation Fund?

The Town of Devon believes in creating an inclusive community where all residents can lead a healthy and active lifestyle regardless of economic circumstance. Through the fund, financial barriers to participation in programs and activities are eased. 

Are you or someone you know eligible?

You are pre-approved if you are a recipient of: income support, AISH, Alberta Child Health Benefits or Alberta Adult Health Benefits.  Those who are not pre-approved may still be eligible for the fund.  Funding is determined by family income, size and circumstances.

Complete the Participation Fund form or email FCSS / call 780-987-8325 for a copy.

Every application is important to us and will be processed in the order received to ensure fairness to all. The processing time may range from 2 – 4 weeks from the date received at the FCSS office, and varies during different times of the year, based on the volume of mail we receive. Please ensure you allow enough time to apply before registering for a program. Funds are not paid retroactively.

Applicants must submit a form for every new request but will not be required to supply proof of residency or income more than once in any one fiscal year (Jan 1 – Dec 31).

If you receive approval you will be contacted and instructions for registration will be provided. It is essential that your application is submitted early. Late applications are not guaranteed in time for registration.

Pool applications will not be accepted until May 1.

June Participation Fund COVID-19 Pool Update

Current Alberta Health Guidelines are requiring us to offer a restricted type of programming at our Devon Community Pool. While these restrictions may ease over the coming weeks, we recognize that access to the pool remains a priority for all residents and therefore, want to make it accessible for as many as possible.

We are able to continue offering the Participation Fund through these restrictions with special conditions in place:

  • Private Rentals – Subsidy Memberships will allow for up to 8 public rentals for a family for the month (average of 2 rentals/week in June)
  • Lane Swim – Subsidy Memberships will allow for up to 15 lane swims for an individual (average of 3 hours/week in June)

A membership will be assigned to the subsidized household or individual. The household or individual may then sign in to RecDesk and register for their designated programs. Pool Subsidy Memberships are in effect for the month of June. If a family or individual exceeds their allowed sessions, their membership will be cancelled for the current month.

As restrictions ease, these memberships will be revisited and adjusted to reflect the available programs at the pool for July and August.
