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 Citizen Advisory Committee will hold a virtual public meeting, Wednesday, February 10th, at 4pm. to discuss 2021 Human Needs funding recommendations. Those who wish to join are asked to call in to +1 425-616-3920, Conference ID 121 594 682 or Click here to join the meeting via Microsoft Teams.
