• Bellevue announces funding availability for human services

    The City of Bellevue is accepting applications from human service providers in the community for 2021-2022 human services funding. Proposals can be submitted from March 4 through April 7.

    Bellevue funds programs that represent the full spectrum of human service needs. This can include food security, housing and homelessness prevention, health, mental health, youth services, and many others.

    Human service providers may submit an application at share1app.org. The Bellevue Human Services Commission will review the submitted applications between April and July and present funding recommendations to the City Council in the fall.

    Selection factors include: priority based on community needs identified in the 2019-2020 Bellevue Human Services Needs Update, prior provider performance, diversity and cultural competence, and consideration of the broad continuum of human services.

    To ensure that the city is a good fiscal steward, contracts are awarded through a competitive process.

    Agencies interested in applying for funds are encouraged to attend one of the Human Services Funder’s Collaborative Workshops: 

    •    Wednesday, March 4, 10 a.m.-noon, Kirkland City Hall, 123 5th Ave.
    •    Monday, March 9, 1-3 p.m., SeaTac City Hall, 4800 S. 188th St.
    •    Tuesday, March 10, 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., Redmond City Hall, 15670 NE 85th St. 

    The workshops will cover application content, technical details and city-specific information. Additional information can be found at share1app.org.

    Bellevue, a member of the Human Services Funders Collaborative, participates in a common application process with 17 other cities in King County to fund human services.
