The City of Spokane’s Community, Housing and Human Services Department (CHHS) is seeking proposals from organizations providing services benefiting extremely-low-to-moderate income residents for approximately $3 million in grants.

Funding is available through the Coordinated Grant Program, which provides a single point of entry for Community Development Block Grant, City of Spokane Human Services Grant and Emergency Solutions Grant program applications. Applications are due by Oct. 10.

“When Mayor Condon consolidated parallel programs into one Community, Housing and Human Services Department and Board, his goal was to ensure that our federal, state and local grant funds serving extremely-to-moderate income citizens are invested as effectively as possible,” said CHHS Director, Jerrie Allard, “This coordinated grant process is a major step in meeting that goal.”

Applications and information, including a schedule for technical assistance sessions, is available at https://beta.spokanecity.org/chhs/ or by calling the CHHS Department at 509.625.6325.

Interested applicants are encouraged to attend a technical assistance workshop which will be held Tuesday, September 9th in the Council Briefing Center. The workshop will start at 10 a.m. and end at 12 p.m.
