2016 Washington Youth & Families Fund Service Grants

Proposals were due to Building Changes in March 2016

Available Funding: Approximately $935,000 in funding to support Diversion strategies for homeless families in Washington State. Funding from Building Changes will be provided for up to three years per agency. 

Eligible Applicants: Nonprofits, local tribes, housing authorities, and/or community-based organizations outside of King, Pierce, and Snohomish Counties.

Goal: Diversion is offered as a "first response" to quickly resolve a family’s homelessness without relying on typical homeless services such as emergency shelter or transitional housing. This investment will help us understand how Diversion strategies can be adapted to meet the needs of communities across Washington.

Awards: Funding awards were announced in June 2016. See: 'First response' strategy for families gets boost across the state
