$2M available to Pierce County providers serving children, youth and young adults

PCHS news

Pierce County Human Services is requesting proposals from providers serving youth and young adults aged birth to 25 years old. Approximately $2.2M is available from the Puget Sound Taxpayer Accountability Account (PSTAA) to fund educational services improving education outcomes in early learning, K-12, and higher education.

Programs must provide Birth to 25 interventions based on the following funding priorities identified by the Pierce County Council, Executive, and the Birth to 25 (B25) Advisory Board:

  • Youth in foster care
  • Youth experiencing homelessness
  • Youth that are low income
  • Other vulnerable populations in the Birth to 25 community

Interested parties must apply online before 4:30 p.m. on Monday, April 17. Funding for this request for proposal (RFP) is allocated for a 6-month period between July 1, 2023 – December 15, 2023.

Applicants must register with OpenGov, Pierce County’s new e-Procurement Portal, using this link. After signing up, an email will be sent to activate the account. There is no cost to register with OpenGov. Vendors already registered with OpenGov can view current solicitations at

In 2015, the Washington State Legislature passed SB5987 which created the Puget Sound Taxpayer Accountability Account (PSTAA) in the state treasury as a part of transportation funding legislation. The account will be funded from a sale and use tax offset fee of 3.25% of total payments made by Sound Transit on the cost of construction projects from “Sound Transit 3” as approved by voters in 2016.
