About the Fund
The City has created a Human Services Innovation, Planning and Capacity Building (InnCap) Funds designed to provide human services organizations short-term, project based support.
The Community Services InnCap Fund provides funding for the following priorities:
- Meet the basic needs of Tacoma residents
- Prepare children and youth for success
- Employability, self-determination, and empowerment
The Mental Health and Substance Used Disorder (MHSUD) InnCap Fund provides funding for the priority of Enhancing Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Services.
Applications are reviewed and funding decisions are made monthly. As of September 9th, 2015 the amount remaining in each fund is:
- Community Services InnCap Fund: $0.00
- MHSUD InnCap Fund: $227,307.00
There are three tracks for each fund:
These funds are not intended to provide for the expansion of existing and established programs and these services should primarily benefit City of Tacoma residents.
Programs wishing to secure InnCap funding should not solicit this funding from the City Council; rather they will need to participate in a short application process conducted in e-C Impact.
How do I request InnCap funding?
The InnCap Fund application is available from e-C Impact. Once you have logged in, select Request a Grant Application. Only create a new account if your agency does not already have an existing e-C Impact account through the City of Tacoma. Use the following contact information if you have questions related to creating or accessing your account in e-CImpact.
Once submitted your application will undergo a review for completeness and legal compliance and then forwarded on to the Human Services Commission (HSC) for rating. Applicants will be asked to present the request to the HSC who will then rate and make recommendations for InnCap funding and contracting as appropriate.
