• Funding availability for human services

    Published March 14 2022

    The City of Bellevue is accepting applications from human service providers in the community for 2023-2024 funding. Proposals can be submitted Tuesday, March 15, to 4 p.m., Thursday, April 28.

    Bellevue funds programs that address the full spectrum of human service needs, including food security, housing stability, homelessness prevention, health, behavioral health, youth services, domestic violence services, childcare subsidies and many others.

    Human service providers can apply at Share-1-App. The Bellevue Human Services Commission will review 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 2021-2022 Bellevue Human Services Needs Update, prior provider performance, diversity and cultural competence, and consideration of the broad continuum of human services.

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

    Agencies interested in applying for funds are encouraged to attend a virtual Human Services Funder’s Collaborative Workshop. The workshops, open to everyone, are especially helpful for first-time applicants. 

    • Tuesday, March 15, 1-3 p.m.
    • Wednesday, March 16, 9-11 a.m. 

    The sessions will cover application content, technical details and city-specific information. Additional information and links to the virtual workshops can be found at Share-1-App. The workshops will be recorded.  

    Bellevue, a member of the Human Services Funders Collaborative, participates in a common application process with 15 other cities in King County to fund human services.

    Accommodation or interpretation services for the workshops may be arranged by calling Andy Owre at 425-452-7871 or the 711 Relay Service. Please call at least 24 hours in advance of the event to arrange interpreting services
