Fiscal Year 2025 Bridge Program Workshop


Notice of the FY25 Bridge Program Funding


The City of Tallahassee invites all interested non-profit human services organizations to participate in the Fiscal Year 25 (FY25) funding cycle of the Bridge Program grant process. Through this program, the City provides funding to eligible organizations to help provide safety net services to vulnerable citizens.


The Bridge Program supports local non-profit organizations working to implement innovative solutions to meet community needs that lack the eligibility requirements to participate in the Community Human Service Partnership (CHSP) grant process. The Bridge Program is a funding opportunity that enables non-profit organizations that do not meet the minimum CHSP standards to strengthen their capacity. Agencies that have previously received or are currently receiving CHSP funding are not eligible for the Bridge Program.


Applications will only be accepted from agencies that meet the Bridge Program eligibility criteria, as listed below:

  • At the time of application submission, the agency is registered as a 501(c)(3) with the United States Department of Treasury.
    • Please note that Fiscal Agents are not accepted. The applying agency must have its own 501(c)(3) status.
  • The agency must demonstrate a record of providing or intent to provide direct human services to residents of Leon County.
  • The agency has not received CHSP funding.


The City’s Human Services staff will host an informational workshop on Friday, June 28, 2024, from 2-3:30 p.m. in the Leon County Conference Room, second floor, Renaissance Center, 435 N. Macomb Street, Tallahassee, FL 32301. Attendance is not required to receive Bridge Program funding but is recommended.

Applications must be completed and submitted online in the City's Neighborly Software Portal. The portal will open at 8 a.m. on July 1 and close at 5 p.m. on July 31. No late applications will be accepted.

The Bridge Program Manual is available on the City’s Human Services website. The CHSP Manual is available at
