City of Tallahassee Bridge Program

6/28/2022

Introduction

In FY2020, the City established the Bridge program to support local organizations proposing to implement innovative solutions to community needs but lacked the eligibility requirements to participate in the Community Human Service Partnership (CHSP) grant process.

The City currently administers the Community Human Service Partnership in collaboration with the County to provide an efficient and effective method for allocating human services grant funds. The CHSP process is robust and has received a Best Practice award from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. CHSP has several minimum requirements and operates on a two- year funding cycle. The Bridge program is an annual funding opportunity with less stringent requirements and enables nonprofit agencies that do not meet the minimum CHSP standards to strengthen its capacity while receiving funding up to a maximum of two years. Agencies are then required to apply to CHSP for funding. Agencies that have previously received or are currently receiving CHSP funding are not eligible for the Bridge program.

 

Minimum Eligibility Requirements

To apply to the Bridge program the agency must meet the following requirements:

  • The agency is registered as a 501(c)(3) with the United States Department of Treasury.
  • The agency can demonstrate a record of providing or intent to provide direct human services to residents of Leon County.
  • The agency has not received a CHSP funding award.

 

Online Application and Application Cycles

To be considered for funding, the agency must complete an online application at https://portal.neighborlysoftware.com/tallahassee/Participant

The agency may submit only one application each funding cycle. Applications will be accepted between July 1st and July 31st, evaluated by August 31st. Fund disbursements are made at the beginning of the City’s fiscal year, October 1st.
