Human Services Fund Grants
Bellevue offers grants to nonprofit organizations to support human services activities. In Spring 2014, funding applications were reviewed by the Human Services Commission for the 2015-2016 biennium.
The Commission used the 2013-2014 Bellevue Human Services Needs Update to establish its 2015-2016 funding strategies. The funding strategies and related requirements were posted to the grant application website, share1app.culturegrants.org, in advance of the 2015-16 application process.
The Commission will hold a public hearing on July 24, 2014. The City's Human Services Commission will receive comments regarding:
- The City's proposed use of its 2015 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and 2015-2016 Human Services Fund, and
- The City's strategies to address the human services and housing needs of our community. More information - Notice of Public Hearing
