Making Friends out of Neighbours

Yellowhead County wants you to meet and mingle with your neighbours and community members—and we’ll even cover some of the cost of your block party!

Want to meet your neighbors and community members but finding it challenging? Then Yellowhead County’s Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) has just what you need—with the Neighbourlink grant!

The Neighbourlink grant is meant to offset the costs of neighbourhood get-togethers, and is intended for events with up to 25 families/properties. With this grant, you can receive up to $200 reimbursement for a community party! Please note: The reimbursement cannot be used to cover costs of alcohol.

With summer upon us, now is the perfect time to hold a neighbourhood party to get to know the people in your area. And it’s not only just fun—the benefits of meeting your neighbours include an increased sense of community; get-togethers encourage neighbours to look after each other and the neighbourhood, and promote safety and help prevent crime when bonds are formed and members are familiar with one-another’s’ schedules.

So how do you apply? The grant is available on the Yellowhead County website. Alternatively, or for more information, please call 780-325-3782/1-800-814-3935.
