City of Cincinnati Human Services Fund

United Way of Greater Cincinnati is administering the City of Cincinnati's Human Services Fund to invest in services for residents based on priorities set by Cincinnati City Council.

 

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

THE APPLICATION WINDOW IS NOW CLOSED

Organizations providing services to residents of the City of Cincinnati are invited to submit proposals seeking financial support from the Fiscal Year 2024 City of Cincinnati Human Services Fund.  

The City of Cincinnati established the Human Services Fund to invest in services for residents based on priorities set by Cincinnati City Council. The investments are meant to complement but not duplicate City services.  

United Way of Greater Cincinnati is facilitating the request for proposals and proposal reviews. The City-appointed Human Services Advisory Committee will review proposals and recommend organizations and programs for funding to City Council. City Council makes final decisions on which programs will be funded under the City’s budget process.  

There are two Requests for Proposals within the Human Services Fund this year:  Service Categories and the Impact Award.

 

SERVICE CATEGORIES

Comprehensive Workforce Development

Youth Gun Violence Prevention and Reduction

Supporting, Securing, and Stabilizing Housing for High-Risk Populations
 

IMPACT AWARD

Eviction Prevention and Housing Stabilization


ABOUT THE IMPACT AWARD

With the Impact Award, City Council seeks to fund one collaborative project between multiple organizations and the City to address Cincinnati’s eviction and housing crisis.

The project should work to reduce evictions and stabilize housing by tracking eviction trends; using predictive analysis; funding immediate costs; and providing access to legal services.
