Human Needs Grants

Each year, the City allocates $3 per capita for grants to non-profit human service organizations providing services to City of Everett residents. Since 2016, an additional $1 per capita has been included for Community Streets Initiative activities. 

Human Needs funds are provided to programs that are accessible without regard to ability to pay, as well as programs that are physically accessible, culturally sensitive, linguistically accessible, and non-discriminatory. The City intends to support programs that promote diversity of all types. 

Funds are available on a January 1 - December 31 calendar year. Funds do not 'rollover' into the next program year and any unexpended funds at the end of the year cannot be combined for a future ask. 

The Citizens Advisory Committee will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 at 4:00pm to allocate remaining Covid-19 relief funds (CDBG-CV) and to re-address 2022 Community Priority Needs. These needs will set priorities for upcoming Human Needs grants and other funding sources. For more information please click here.
