2014 City of Seattle Senior Center Investment Process

During the 2013 and 2014 budget process, the City of Seattle increased its investment in senior centers from $450,000 to over one million dollars. As part of this investment, the City Council tasked the Human Services Department (HSD) with conducting a planning effort which will culminate in a competitive bid process* to allocate funding for 2015 senior center contracts.

* This process and subsequent funding is limited to senior centers within the Seattle City limits.

A summary of these efforts will be included in the Notice of Funding Announcment (NOFA) to be released on June 16, 2014.
