About: The King County Department of Community and Human Services (DCHS) is pleased to release this Request for Proposal for Caregiver Supports for Caregivers of Seniors and Veterans with funding from the Veterans, Seniors and Human Services (VSHSL) and guidance from the VSHSL Implementation Plan.

This request seeks an entity or entities to provide community building and/or respite programs to caregivers of seniors and/or veterans living in King County to enable long-term, sustainable caregiving. The VSHSL Implementation Plan defines caregiver as a person who, without pay, cares for or supervises another person who requires such care or supervision due to disability, chronic illness or, in the case of senior, age-related decline. Government benefits or financial assistance provided directly to a person for being a caregiver are not considered pay within this definition.

Please refer to the Library tab for the full RFP and associated attachments.

Available Funding: Up to $1,238,500 in seniors and veterans funding through the Veterans, Seniors and Human Services Levy funds

Investment Period: August 1, 2021 - Dec. 31, 2023 (subject to change)

Bidders Conference:
Thursday, May 27, 2021,  10 - 11:30 am.

Eligibility  [hide this]

This request is open to nonprofit organizations, community-based organizations, tribes and tribal organizations and public or governmental agencies serving communities in King County. Small nonprofits, organizations led by people of color or Native and Indigenous people, and organizations serving LGBTQ+ communities of color, other culturally specific organizations and small community-based organizations are encouraged to submit proposals. Eligible applicants must meet the following qualifications:

  • Currently serve or meaningfully engage with seniors and/or veterans and their caregivers in King County or have a clear plan to build capacity to provide the eligible services outlined in the scope of work.
  • Currently provide, or have a willingness to provide, culturally-specific supports or meaningfully partner with culturally-specific providers or equivalent community-based entities.

Priority will be given to applications that serve diverse groups or communities and are not currently receiving funding from the VSHSL, including providers receiving VSHSL funding administered through City of Seattle, Human Services Department, Aging and Disability Services (ADS). These two funding investments aim to extend reach to diverse communities with less access to caregiving supports throughout King County. In order to be considered for funding, applications from providers currently receiving VSHSL funding for caregiving supports under one or both of these strategies being administered through ADS must propose to support a group other than the current population they are serving.

King County reserves the right to select an application that supports a particularly marginalized community or provides insight into a community which has not been supported through any prior King County funding.
