Human Services Advisory Committee

Role

The City of Snoqualmie assigns a portion of its general fund to provide aid for residents in need. Human and social services are often provided directly by larger municipalities, however, the City of Snoqualmie contracts these services through community organizations because the City does not employ staff with expertise in these areas.

The Human Services Advisory Committee works with staff to identify and prioritize funding needs in the community, administer the funding application process, recommend budget allocations to the City Council, and review accountability reports from Human Services organizations to ensure efficient use of City funds.

2021-2022 Human Services Budget

The City allocated $226,287 to Human Services organizations in 2021 and $238,827 in 2022. Together, this represents approximately 1.3% of the biennial budget.
