Everett community service groups can apply for city grants

The city of Everett is offering money to groups that supply basic needs to residents.

EVERETT — Community service groups that supply basic needs to Everett residents, including food and housing relief, can apply for a limited grant from the city of Everett.

The application period begins at 5 p.m. Monday and closes May 29.

The city’s Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Grant allocates $500,000 to community service programs that serve the city’s hardest-hit and most-vulnerable residents.

Community service grants are intended to be used to prepare for, and respond to, impacts of COVID-19 pandemic.

Priority will be given to service providers that provide housing and food programs.

The Everett City Council authorized $1 million last month to help service providers and small businesses.

The application period for $500,000 for small business grants ended earlier this month. More than 150 businesses applied, city officials said.

The funds are being made available through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Guideline changes are allowing cities easier access to Community Development Block Grant funds to aid community service providers.
