The City of Snoqualmie Human Services Advisory Committee has opened the application process to request funding for human services programs to be provided during 2019-2020.
As part of a strategic plan passed by the City Council, the Human Services Advisory Committee – which selects funding recipients – recommended transitioning to a two-year funding cycle starting next year.
The City of Snoqualmie assigns approximately 1% of its general fund to community and human service organizations that serve the greater Snoqualmie Valley and provide services that benefit children, seniors, individuals, and families in need.
These types of services are often provided by cities, but because the City of Snoqualmie does not have a Health and Human Services department with expertise in these areas, it contracts through funding to local organizations that provide aid for food, shelter, clothing, counseling and safety throughout the community.
The application is posted on the City of Snoqualmie website.
Applications are due no later than August 22, 2018 at 5PM. Following the application process, the Human Services Advisory Committee meets to determine funding recommendations to the City Council for their allocation approval.
Last year the city allocated $169,000 to Snoqualmie Valley organizations.
