Additional Information about the Human Services Program

In June 2018, the Town Council adopted a new Results Framework for the Human Services Program.  Adoption of the Results Framework reflects the Town's interest in further focusing the Human Services Program on results and deepening the program's impact to address the community's greatest challenges.

Applications for funding must align with at least one of three strategic objectives:

1. Children improve their educational outcomes
2. Residents increase their livelihood security
3. Residents improve their health outcomes

In addition to the Results Framework, the Town has made additional changes to streamline the Human Services Program for the FY20 Cycle, including:

  • Going electronic. Applications will be accepted electronically only.
  • Shortening the funding application. The entire application is now only nine questions. 
  • Piloting a Community Impact Award, for larger requests in the amount of $30-50,000. Up to three awards of this kind will be made for the FY20 Funding Cycle. Please see the application to learn more.   
  • No hearing is required for requests in the amount of $5,000 and below.
