Grant recommendations are made by the City of Issaquah’s Human Services Commission, a 7-member volunteer board appointed by the Mayor and approved by the City Council. The Human Services Commission uses the strategic priorities from the Human Services Strategic Plan to guide funding decisions.
Issaquah City Council adopted funding for a pilot Emergency Housing Program (EHP) as part of the City’s 2023-2024 biennial budget. Requests for Proposals have been released and are due on February 28, 2023.
About the Program
The Emergency Housing Program will assist individuals who are homeless in Issaquah in their transition towards becoming housed and self-sufficient members in the community. The City is currently seeking a Case Management Service Provider interested in partnering with the city to help implement this program.
The role of the service provider will be to oversee the day-to-day operations of the Emergency Housing Program (EHP), work individually with persons enrolled to establish health, housing, and career/employment related goals; ensure measurable progress towards established goals and ensure successful achievement of program outcomes. This new program will be a partnership between the City of Issaquah, Motel 6 – iQon Hospitality, and the selected Case Management Service Provider.
