Community Human Services Program
Apply Now for 2020 Human Services Funding (September 3 - September 30)
City of Tumwater invites agencies PROVIDING HUMAN SERVICES to Tumwater residents to submit funding applications for the year 2020. 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.
Tumwater asks that if you expect to receive regional funds through the Health and Human Services Council (HHSC), that you not apply for the same program through the local Community Human Services Program. Tumwater contributes at least $25,000 to the regional process. If you have a different program that will benefit Tumwater residents, your agency is welcome to apply.
Applications 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 Monday, September 30, 2019, at Tumwater City Hall. Complete applications may be dropped off at Tumwater City Hall or mailed to Hanna Miles, Executive Department, 555 Israel Road SW, Tumwater, WA 98501. Postmarks, late, and/or incomplete applications will not be accepted.
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 or early November. The Budget and Finance Committee will make a funding recommendation to the Tumwater City Council as part of the current budget cycle.
Community Human Services Program Background
Funds are set aside each year to support human services organizations that provide necessary aid for Tumwater residents who are vulnerable, low-income, or disadvantaged. The City of Tumwater participates in a regional approach through the Thurston County Health and Human Services Council (HHSC).
The City also sets aside funds for agencies providing a direct benefit to Tumwater residents that may not qualify for funds through the regional approach. These funds are distributed through the Community Human Services Program (CHSP). Applications are available and accepted during the month of September each year.
