I asked this question in 2009, and found at least 14 units were funded by their municipality, or under FCSS.
I have been asked by Jasper Mayor and Council to check on what is currently being done in the Province, and I would appreciate your help. This may assist others and our own Programs in applying for funding from the Municipality. The Personnel Survey does show that 20 Municipalities do fund their Victim Services Program between 2 – 80% (20% average), and 10 programs are funded between 1 – 31% (6% average), of their total budgets. It would be great to have more detailed numbers on this statistic, and I would ask that you please add a comment to the list below with:
Program Name *Municipality(s)-with/ *Program Manager *Population(s)-with/ *Funds provided(“F” FCSS or “M” Municipality)
Jasper Victim Services *Jasper *Paul Schmidt *4980 population *$11 500.00November 16, 2015 at 3:22 PM #2821
