Human Needs Grants

Each year, the City allocates $3 per capita for grants to non-profit human service organizations providing services to City of Everett residents. Since 2016, an additional $1 per capita has been included for Community Streets Initiative activities. 

Human Needs funds are provided to programs that are accessible without regard to ability to pay, as well as programs that are physically accessible, culturally sensitive, linguistically accessible, and non-discriminatory. The City intends to support programs that promote diversity of all types. 

Funds are available on a January 1 - December 31 calendar year. Funds do not 'rollover' into the next program year and any unexpended funds at the end of the year cannot be combined for a future ask. 

Applications for 2022 Human Needs funds are now available through Amplifund, the City's new grant management software program. The link to apply for 2022 Human Needs funds in Amplifund can be found by visiting the Grant Opportunities webpage

Please see the Registration webpage to learn how to create an account in Amplifund if your organization does not already have one.
