Launch of Call for Applications for Community Mobilization Supports for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Family/Caregiver Support Networks


Selection of an Organization to Provide Community Mobilization Supports for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Family/Caregiver Support Networks


The Ministry of Children and Youth Services (MCYS) is currently seeking to retain an organization with expertise in Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder to build and mobilize communities by bringing together families and caregivers for individuals with FASD.

This will include allocation of small grant funds in 2017-18, 2018-19 and 2019-20 to be made available to approximately 35 existing FASD networks and for the establishment of up to 10 new networks in Ontario where a need for parent/family/caregiver support has been identified.

This funding will be used to provide a forum for families and caregivers to support each other and share information on FASD, build communities of practice across the province, share effective/best practices between communities, support parent/caregiver mentorship and organize and mobilize local FASD initiatives to improve outcomes for individuals living with FASD.

Interested agencies will be expected to have the existing resources, infrastructure and capacity to develop and implement this project. In addition to knowledge of FASD, the successful coordinating agency must have demonstrated experience in community mobilization, effective parenting/family/caregiver supports and experience with administering grants.

For more information and to request the documents required to submit an application to develop and implement the FASD Family/Caregiver Support Networks, please contact FASDStrategy@ontario.ca.

All organizations who wish to apply for this initiative must complete an application form.

All completed application forms are due to FASDStrategy@ontario.ca by 4:00 p.m. on February 2, 2018.
