City of SeaTac Considers Slashing Funding for Children's Therapy Center
The City of SeaTac has provided essential funding for CTC for many years. As a nonprofit, CTC depends heavily on city and community support to continue providing services to children with special needs in our community. Yet this funding is now at risk.
The new city council recently commissioned a consultant to evaluate what services are needed in SeaTac and how the city should allocate its grant funds. We're concerned the consultant is going to recommend cutting back on the number of nonprofits who receive money from the city and priortizing a select few that address homelessness and hunger.
This decision may impact other funding sources, as the other King County cities that fund us are also looking at evaluating their grantees more strictly.
Monday, 12/11/17 at 5:30 pm at Seatac City Hall, 4800 188th St S, First floor, Seatac, WA 98188, the consultant will present a summary of their recommendations. The meeting is open to all. Community members are encouraged to attend the meeting to comment on the recommendations and urge the city council to continue funding CTC and all other organizations currently receiving funding from the city.
A second meeting will be held on January 9, 2018 (time TBD but check back here for confirmation).
