We all want our neighbors to have the tools to build a good life, no matter their circumstances.  Whether it’s providing basic needs such as food, housing, and employment, or providing more specialized services like homelessness prevention, domestic violence survivor support, physical and behavioral health services, and youth programs, the City of Kirkland is committed to investing in our community’s well-being. 

“The City of Kirkland funds various human services agencies so all Kirklanders have access to the basic support services they need to thrive,” said Kirkland Mayor Kelli Curtis.  “We are once again accepting applications for agencies seeking 2025-2026 funding through our Human Services Grant Program.  We urge interested agencies to apply for City funding so they can provide these critical services to our community.”

Agencies interested in applying are strongly encouraged to visit Share One, the grant application website to learn more about the application process. The online application must be submitted no later than Monday, April 8, 2024 at 4:00 PM.

Agencies who have not applied or received City funding in the past are strongly recommended to reach out to the Human Services Coordinator before applying.

Applications will be reviewed by the City’s Human Services Commission, an eight-member volunteer board appointed by the City Council. The Commission will present its recommendations on grant funding awards to City Council in the fall. Final allocation amounts will be adopted by the City Council as part of the City’s budget process. Following City Council approval in December, City staff will notify agencies of final allocations and initiate the contracting process. Awarded funds will be available January 1, 2025, which is the start of the fiscal and program year.
