The District of Columbia (District) Department of Human Services (DHS) Family Services Administration (FSA), is soliciting proposals (also referred to as “applications”) from applicants (or “prospective Grantees”) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 for the provision of Housing-Focused Case Management and other health and supportive services at the new 801 East Men’s Shelter, located on St. Elizabeth’s Campus.
Through this RFA, DHS seeks to establish a variaty of services at the new 801 East Men’s Shelter, all geared towards engagement, consumer well-being, and ultimately connections to permanent housing. Programming in the facility will be divided into three distinct components: Day Center Programming, Health Clinic and Medical Respite Program Management, and Housing-Focused Case Management Services. A separate set of functions, collectively referred to as Shelter Operations, will be procured and delivered separately from this grant solicitation. These functions include general building management, building security, janitorial services, facility maintenance, landscaping, and food preparation/handling. Entities bidding on the work outlined in this grant solicitation will be expected to coordinate closely with Shelter Operations staff. This project will serve as an opportunity to test a new approach to providing tailored services to unaccompanied individuals with a goal of making the experience of homelessness as brief as possible.
Applications for this funding opportunity are due on or before 5pm EST on Monday, September 27, 2021. Additionally, there will be a Pre-Bidders Conference held on Wednesday, August 25, 2021 from 10:00am-12:00pm. Prospective applicants are encouraged to contact Jennifer Miné, Grants Management Specialist at [email protected] if they have questions or to pre-register for the Pre-Bidders Conference.
