About the Human Needs Committee
The Human Needs Advisory Committee is a citizens' committee that makes recommendations to City Council on the allocation of the City's Human Needs Grant funds.
Each year, the City allocates $3 per capita for grants to non-profit human service organizations rendering services to City of Everett residents. For both the 2016 and 2017 fiscal year, an additional $1 per capita has been included for Community Streets Initiative activities. In 2017, $324,900 is estimated to be granted to non-profit agencies and $108,300 to Community Streets Initiative work.
