City Funded Human Services

On an annual basis, the City of Bainbridge Island provides significant financial support to local nonprofit organizations to support human services programs in the community.

The City uses a two-year funding cycle to solicit proposals from local non-profits seeking City funding for human services activities that serve the residents of Bainbridge Island.

Members of the Human Services Funding Advisory Committee (HSFAC) review funding proposals and develop a recommendation. This recommendation is submitted to the City Council for consideration and approval.

For more information on the Human Services Funding Advisory Committee, please visit their webpage.

Community Needs Assessment

In 2016, the City commissioned a community needs assessment to inform the City's funding for human services (PDF).

2017 to 2018 Funding Cycle

In late 2016, the City of Bainbridge Island issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for 2017-18 Human Services Funding (PDF). The Human Services Funding Advisory Committee developed a funding recommendation (PDF) which the City Council approved on December 13, 2016.


The City also developed a report to capture feedback on the 2017-18 award process (PDF).
