City Council Recommends 38% Increase to Human Services and Community Organization Funding for 2022

City council 2020

During an October 26th North Bend City Council Workstudy session, Councilmembers recommended a 38% increase in grant funding for local nonprofit organizations that serve community and human service needs of North Bend residents. This increase follows an approximate 31% annual increase in 2021. 

In total, City Councilmembers recommended $198,000 in human services and community organization grants for 2022. 

The City, which does not have a Department of Human Services due to its small size, allocates approximately 1% of its general fund each year to Snoqualmie Valley nonprofits and organizations that provide support services to North Bend children, families and seniors. 

Mayor Rob McFarland commented, “Our City is very lucky to have strong community organizations as partners to assist us in fostering the health, safety and well-being of our citizens. After a sizeable increase in health and human services funding in 2021, our City Council took another bold step by allocating an additional $54,500 for 2022 to support these organizations and the important work they do for the North Bend community.” 

Local organizations receiving grants will be notified in the coming weeks. The recommended 2022 Human Services and Community Organization funding will be formally approved in December when the Mid-Biennium Budget Adjustment comes to Council for a full vote.
