City Funded Human Services

Committee Purpose

On an annual basis, the City of Bainbridge Island provides significant financial support to local nonprofit organizations to support human services programs in the community.

The City uses a two-year funding cycle to solicit proposals from local non-profits seeking City funding for human services activities that serve the residents of Bainbridge Island.

Members of the Human Services Funding Advisory Committee (HSFAC) review funding proposals and develop a recommendation. This recommendation is submitted to the City Council for consideration and approval.

For more information on the Human Services Funding Advisory Committee, please visit their webpage.
