About: The King County Department of Community and Human Services (DCHS) is pleased to release this Request for Proposal for VSHSL Strategy - SS 2D: Remote Access from Rural Food Banks Pilot with funding from the Veterans, Seniors and Human Services (VSHSL) and guidance from the VSHSL Implementation Plan.
This request seeks to improve access to services for individuals in rural areas through rural food banks that will operate as centralized points of access from which residents may increase knowledge about what human services may be available to meet their needs, connect to service providers and/or potentially receive direct support or assistance at this centralized location. The aim of this pilot is to increase access to knowledge about service availability and increase access to services themselves in rural areas.
