The City of Corvallis’ social service allocations process is guided by Council Policy 00-6.05 Social Service Funding Policy. The current policy may be viewed here cc 00.6.05 Social Service Policy.
|Each year since 1987, the City has set aside funds to help local non-profit agencies meet the needs of the community. United Way of Benton County provides expertise and administrative support in this effort. In FY 16-17, the City will distribute $361,000 to 22 different agencies in support of 28 programs.
Prior to each year's allocation, the City Council establishes the social service priorities. The priorities continue to be emergency and transitional needs. In FY 16-17 for example, Community Outreach was allocated $120,000 to provide integrated housing and health services; the Boys and Girls Club will receive $20,000 for Clubhouse support; Jackson Street Youth Shelter will receive 30,000; ABC House will receive $20,000 in support of Project Heal; and the Center Against Rape & Domestic Violence (CARDV) will receive $13,000 to provide shelter services.
