City of Cincinnati Human Services Fund Announces Request for Proposals

City of Cincinnati Skyline

Organizations providing services to residents of the city of Cincinnati are invited to submit proposals seeking financial support from the Fiscal Year 2022 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. 

Proposals are requested within the Human Services Fund priority areas: 

  • Homelessness prevention
  • Increase gainful employment
  • Addiction prevention
  • Violence prevention
  • Supportive senior services

Proposals are due by 4 p.m. Monday, May 3. Applicants will be notified of funding decisions by the end of June. Selected organizations will be provided funding through direct contract with the city of Cincinnati. Contracts will run from September 1, 2021, until August 31, 2022. 

Proposals must be submitted using United Way’s e-CImpact data collection system, which will open for submission on April 19. If your organization does not already have an account in e-CImpact, you can register immediately using the directions below. 

United Way will use this web page for updates and Frequently Asked Questions.
