Human Services Grants

The City of Sammamish is committed to providing funding support to local non-profit organizations to help ensure that Sammamish residents can access assistance they may need to survive and thrive. This may include help with food, shelter, utility bills, medical or dental care, legal issues, counseling, employment, affordable child care, or linkage to other services not listed here. Every effort is made to ensure services are locally provided.

Every two years, the City solicits applications for Human Service Funding. The grants are awarded based on the service provided, the number of Sammamish residents served, as well as the organizations ability to provide positive outcomes and cooperation with other providers. The application process for 2013-2014 is completed and all funds have been allocated.
