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 Task Force 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 Task Force, please visit their webpage.

2021 Funding Cycle

Because of the current complications due to the ongoing pandemic, constraints on City administrative capacity, significant organizational impacts to the non-profit recipient organizations, and the low initial community response to the call for task force members, the City Council extended the current distribution of funds so that funding in the 2021-2022 cycle is applied in a manner that best addresses current and emerging community needs. 

This funding approach was approved by the City Council on August 25, 2020.
