Public Notice Community Human Services Program

Post Date:09/02/2018

City of Tumwater invites agencies PROVIDING HUMAN SERVICES to Tumwater residents to submit funding applications for the year 2019. It is expected that the City of Tumwater will have $15,000 to distribute to local organizations that provide necessary aid for Tumwater residents who are vulnerable, low-income, or disadvantaged.

The application can be downloaded as a fill-in form, and are also available at Tumwater City Hall. Complete applications with original signature and budget materials must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, September 28, 2018, at Tumwater City Hall. Postmarks, late, and/or incomplete applications will not be accepted. Complete applications may be dropped off at Tumwater City Hall or mailed to Hanna Miles, Executive Department, 555 Israel Road SW, Tumwater, WA  98501. For more information, call (360) 754-4120, or email 

Tumwater asks that if you expect to receive regional funds through the Community Investment Partnership and the Health and Human Services Council (CIP/HHSC), that you not apply for the same program through the local Community Human Services Program. Tumwater contributes $25,000 to the regional process. If you have a different program that will benefit Tumwater residents, your agency is welcome to apply.

Agencies that have submitted a complete application with budget materials and met the deadline will be contacted to schedule a presentation before the City of Tumwater’s Budget and Finance Committee. Presentations are required and expected to occur in October. The Budget and Finance Committee will make a funding recommendation to the Tumwater City Council as part of the current budget cycle.
