Organizations that provide human services to Bellevue residents can apply for funding from the city of Bellevue through April 10. The city is issuing a request for proposals for services in 2019 and 2020.
Selection factors include community needs identified in the 2017-18 Bellevue Human Services Needs Update, focus areas, prior performance, diversity and cultural competence and consideration of the broad continuum of human services, from senior services to child care to mental health counseling.
The Bellevue Human Services Commission will review proposals between April and July, and present funding recommendations to the City Council in the fall. Contracts are awarded through a competitive process.
As a member of the Human Services Funders Collaborative, Bellevue participates in a common application process with 17 other cities in King County.
