The Human Needs Committee is made up of 7 Everett residents who are appointed by the mayor and approved by City Council.
About the Human Needs Committee
The Human Needs Advisory Committee is a citizens' committee that makes recommendations to City Council on the allocation of the City's Human Needs Grant funds. In January 2019, the Human Needs Committee merged with the Community Advisory Committee. The Community Advisory Committee now reviews Human Needs funds, CDBG funding, HOME funding, and AHTF 2060 funds.
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. A total of $333,600 will be granted to non-profit agencies and $111,200 to Safe Streets programs and activities.
The Application period for Human Needs proposals is now closed. The Community Advisory Committee has drafted proposal recommendations for the City Council to be briefed on February 27th and review for action on March 6, 2019.
