Request for Proposals: Rhode Island Compliance Assistance Program
Friends and colleagues,
Ensuring that landlords are in compliance with existing regulations, assisting low income families, and enforcing current laws designed to protect families from lead hazards are essential to providing lead safe housing. The Healthy Kids Collaborative (HKC), a partnership of the Attorney General of Rhode Island and the Children’s Health Forum, and funded by DuPont, will implement a compliance assistance initiative in Rhode Island as part of our comprehensive approach to prevent childhood lead poisoning.
We are delighted to announce a third program under HKC for compliance assistance in Rhode Island. $850,000 in grant funding is now available for this program for one- to three-year grants. Grants will be awarded based on the following directives:
HKC would like to make all awards prior to the start of 2011. This will enable the programs to begin in January 2011.
If your organization is interested in applying for any portion of this program, please submit a 2 page proposal outlining a narrative description of your approach with proposed deliverables, timelines, and evaluation benchmarks included. If possible, identify staff and/or subcontractors who will be managing the program or will be program partners as an addendum to the proposal. In addition, include a 1 page proposed budget clearly demonstrating how funding will be utilized. Prior to making grant awards, HKC may request additional information from applicants regarding program proposal and budget, staff, organization history, current programs, financial disclosures, and other information.
Thank you for your prompt attention to this request.
