Pierce County Aging and Disability Resources (ADR) is requesting proposals from organizations providing senior center services. Approximately $500K is available from County General Funds annually for these services, which can be used to support the basic operations of a senior center including salaries, rent, office supplies, public utilities and more.
Senior centers are places where older adults can access a range of activities and services to improve their health, well-being, and independence, and where people of all ages can actively engage in their community. They are an integral part of the aging service network, providing a trusted and welcoming place where older adults can connect to needed services. Senior centers are also important community and neighborhood hubs that raise awareness of aging issues, promote aging readiness and generate support for healthy aging in their communities.
Interested parties must apply online before 12 p.m. on Friday, July 21, 2023. Funding for this request for proposal (RFP) will be allocated for a 2-year contract period between January 1, 2024 – December 31, 2025.
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 www.piercecountywa.gov/bids.
ADR is designated by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services / Aging and Long-Term Support Administration as the Area Agency on Aging (AAA) for Pierce County. As an AAA, ADR is responsible for local planning, coordination and administration of Federal and State funds targeted to provide a comprehensive system of long-term services and supports (LTSS) designed to address the needs and support community living for frail older adults, adults with disabilities and their caregivers residing in Pierce County.
