The City of Bainbridge Island is seeking proposals to provide funding to local nonprofit organizations to support human services programs in the community during the 2019-2020 funding cycle.
A total of $660,000 will be available for distribution through the two-year funding cycle to support selected projects. City funds support a range of services related to housing, health, youth programs, elder care and other human needs. A list of previous awards can be found on the City Funded Human Services page.
Members of the Human Services Funding Advisory Committee (HSFAC), made up of seven citizens and two Councilmember liaisons, review the funding proposals and develop a recommendation that is submitted to the City Council for consideration and approval.
Applicant and project requirements are included in the Request for Proposals (RFP), which is also available on the City Funded Human Services page. Applicants seeking funding must be registered as a federally sanctioned nonprofit under 26 U.S.C. Sec. 501(c)(3). Applications must be submitted on the City website by 4 p.m. on Friday, September 28.
Potential applicants are invited to attend an informational meeting on Thursday, August 30 at 10 a.m. at the City Hall Council Conference Room. Attendance is not required to apply for funding.
