Ad-hoc Human Services Allocations Committee

Friday, April 2, 2010

The City of Shoreline is recruiting for 8-10 members for the Ad-hoc Human Services Allocation Committee. Volunteers must live or work in Shoreline.


The City awards funding to human service agencies on a two year funding cycle. Capital projects are on a one year funding cycle. The Ad-hoc Allocations Committee is charged with reviewing applications and making funding recommendations to the City Manager. The manager in turn forwards the recommendations, with any changes, to the Council for final action.

The City allocated approximately $400,000 for agency funding, we do not anticipate any new funding for human services contracting and all current grantees are meeting their goals. The Committee may, however, be asked to suggest options for ways to allocate any new funding that may become available for services. Funds for capital projects are available and we anticipate applications for review.

Time Commitment

The Committee will meet three times during June with the contingency of a final meeting in July, if needed. All meetings are in the evening, with each lasting about two hours. Volunteers should plan to spend one to two hours reading materials prior to each meeting.

The Assignment

Review any new applications for funding for both human services and capital projects related to human services and make recommendations for funding.

Assess the extent to which existing grantees are addressing two key issues: cultural competency and the outcomes or benefits to participants as a result of program activities.

Applications can be found on the city website.

Please mail completed application to the above address Attn: Victoria Alie or email application. If you have further questions, please contact George Smith at 206-801-2252.

Applications are due April 29.
