Marysville opens grant fund for human services projects

MARYSVILLE, Wash. — The City of Marysville is accepting grant applications for funding to support health and human services principally benefiting low- and moderate-income Marysville residents. Applications are due by 5 p.m. Friday, April 1.

The City Council recently designated $200,000 from federal American Rescue Plan Act funds to fund projects in 2022. The intent is to fund basic human needs of individuals and families including:

  • Survival
  • Finding and retaining gainful employment
  • Support in times of personal or family crisis
  • Assistance in overcoming family or individual problems
  • Help in gaining access to available, appropriate services

Agencies eligible for grant funding must provide services within the City of Marysville and meet the following criteria:

  • 501(c)(3) status or be sponsored by a 501(c)(3) agency;
  • Meet minimum insurance requirements ($1M/occurrence, $2M annual aggregate);
  • Be willing and able to accept reimbursement for funds;
  • Regularly track and submit reports regarding services;
  • Serve City of Marysville residents; and
  • Comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws prohibiting discrimination.

The most competitive applications will identify and address a key need for Marysville residents and support that need with data. They should explain the services that will be provided, the program’s target population, and how program effectiveness will be measured. Applications should also include planned marketing and outreach efforts, how the program serves diverse populations, program budget, and affordability and accessibility.

A grant review committee will review and score applications to make the award selections. Programs that are awarded city grant funds must be completed by Dec. 31, 2022, with request for cost reimbursement filed by Jan. 31, 2023.
