Human Services Advisory Committee
Colleen Brandt-Schluter Human Services Manager
The City of SeaTac contracts with area service providers to meet the human services needs of its residents. The funding is made available through 1.5% of the City's General Fund budget. The SeaTac Human Services Advisory Committee identifies the non-profit agencies that can best meet local service needs and makes recommendations to the City Council on funding priorities. Those priorities are based upon addressing the following needs:
- Basic needs, such as food and shelter
- Primary physical, mental, and dental care
- Domestic violence prevention and victim support
- Information and referral services
- Services to support independent living
- Specialized services for refugee and immigrant populations
