The City of Edina’s Human Services Task Force seeks proposals for 2022-2023 human services funding. This funding is open to human services agencies and organizations that address an immediate basic human need (i.e., elements required for survival and normal/healthy mental and physical health, such as food, water, shelter, protection from environmental threats, and supportive services to assist with activities of daily living) for residents of Edina.
The Human Services Task Force, made up of members of Edina’s advisory boards and commissions, will make recommendations on agencies and organizations in need of funding to the Edina City Council. The Task Force meets every two years, corresponding with the City’s two-year budget cycle. The City will fund the selected organizations for two years. Organizations need not be based in Edina, but their service area must include Edina residents.
Previous recipients have included the Normandale Center, VEAP, Oasis for Youth, Beacon Interfaith, Cornerstone Advocacy Service and Senior Community Services.
Human services providers may submit proposals for funding of their services, indicating how they intend to meet the needs of Edina residents. Select applicants will be invited to a task force meeting the evening of Sept. 20, to make short presentations supporting their funding requests.
Requests and proposals for 2022-2023 funding must be received by 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 19. The application and more details can be found at EdinaMN.gov/HS.
