Social Services Funding


Annually, the Whittier Social Services Commission provides grant funding for local non-profit agencies which provide necessary and specialized services to City of Whittier residents.

Agencies submit applications for funding, which are reviewed by the Commission. They, in turn make recommendations for agencies and funding amounts for the Whittier City Council’s review and approval.

The Social Services Commission submitted its 2013-14 recommendations during the FY 2013-14 budget process.  Despite the challenging state of the economy, the City Council approved $182,766 in funding for 28 local non-profit social services agencies when they approved the FY 2013-14 budget at their June 25, 2013 meeting.

Funding for the successful applicants was awarded with the beginning of the fiscal year on July 1, 2013.
