The combined funding is used to support preventative social initiatives, projects, and services that enhance the social well-being of individuals, families, and/or the community.  

Red Deer County provides local Recreation & Culture Programming at local community halls and other community facilities. These programs are offered based on local community interest & needs. 

Red Deer County has many amazing volunteers that help make the community a great place to live, work and grow! Each month some of these volunteers will be featured in the Red Deer County News.
