As we heard yesterday from King County, the Seattle Foundation is launching a Resilience Fund, at least $350,000 of which will be used to support services for immigrants and refugees. The first deadline is coming up on June 26, so get your applications in soon!

Several Eastside organizations are providing high quality, critical services to immigrants and refugees, and other vulnerable populations. ERIC is working to support a collaborative approach where members participate in joint decision making about the community’s needs and the best resources to meet those needs. As a coalition, we support all our members to thrive in providing the services they are uniquely qualified to provide. If you’re proposing a new resource or service for this funding opportunity, please consider reaching out to us so we can ensure that multiple proposals aren’t submitted to provide the same types of services to the same parts of our community.

ERIC will offer limited technical assistance to the Eastside organizations applying for funding, particularly to smaller organizations that do not have fund development staff and/or who have not yet secured sustainable funding.

To coordinate ideas for grant proposals and to request technical assistance, contact Debbie Lacy, the ERIC Director.
