Pierce County Aging and Disability Resources (ADR) is requesting proposals from organizations providing free, evidence-based fall prevention program. Approximately $44K is available from the Federal Older Americans Act (OAA) funding, which provides support for programs that support healthy lifestyles and promote healthy behaviors.
Fall prevention services must target older adults aged 60+ years old who live in a medically underserved area and demonstrate the greatest economic need. In addition, priority is given to programs that demonstrate that they make special efforts to serve residents of rural areas, older adults with physical and/or cognitive disabilities, under-represented ethnic and cultural groups, and older adults who have limited English proficiency.
One (1) application workshop will be conducted by Pierce County staff via Zoom and is scheduled for August 8, 2023, from 1:30 to 3:30pm. Inquiries regarding the content of this RFP must be submitted to the County in writing, no later than August 8, 2023, by 4:00 P.M. No later than 4:00 pm on August 10, 2023, the County will provide a written response to each question received, and, as applicable, will issue any resulting amendments to this RFP.
Interested parties must apply online before 12 p.m. on Thursday August 31, 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.
