The city of Bainbridge Island is seeking proposals to provide funding to local nonprofit organizations to support human services programs in the community during the 2019-2020 funding cycle.

The grants are targeted to support a range of services related to housing, health, youth programs, elder care and other human needs.

Potential applicants are invited to attend an informational meeting at 10 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 30 in the city hall council conference room. (Attendance is not required to apply for funding.)

Applications must be submitted on the city website by 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 28.

City officials said a total of $660,000 will be available for distribution through the two-year funding cycle to support selected projects. A list of previous awards can be found on the city’s website at

Members of the city’s Human Services Funding Advisory Committee, made up of seven citizens and two council member liaisons, will review the funding proposals and develop a recommendation that will be submitted to the city council for consideration and approval.

Applicant and project requirements are included in the Request for Proposals (RFP), which is available on the city website. Applicants seeking funding must be registered as a federally sanctioned nonprofit.
