No Grants for 2020-2021 Fiscal Year

In light of our state’s severe budget crisis resulting from COVID-19, we will not be providing new grants for the 2020-21 fiscal year. This decision does not come easily, as we understand, deeply respect and admire the great work our many grant applicants and recipients do in helping Washington’s most at-risk residents.

We will continue to assess the state and our agency’s budget/economic status as we move through the year and hope for improvement. In December, we will assess the possibility of providing grant funding for the 2021-22 Fiscal Year.

We will post future grant program status updates here on the grants information page.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we work through these difficult times. If you have questions, please contact Lyn Peters at
