Bids - Delaware Bids and Contracts (Family SHADE Initiative for Children and Youth with Special Needs)
The Division of Public Health (DPH) is looking for key community organizations to address community needs with a range of services and/or programs that will propel Delaware forward in implementing standards for systems of care for children and youth with special health care needs and meeting Title V state and national performance measure goals. This RFP seeks a contractor to serve as the backbone organization to subcontract, support and manage the key organizations directly delivering the needed interventions.
The awarded contractor will support the DPH through facilitation and project management to implement the Family SHADE initiative mini-grant project that will provide grants for 3 to 6 subcontractor organizations (community based and other stakeholder organizations) by January 2022. The contractor will use a collective impact approach to ensure the subcontractors are fully engaged around intent and implantation to successfully implement interventions to address the Title V national performance measures for the CYSHCN population. The contractor will provide operational oversight (administrative and financial) to the subcontractor’s projects on behalf of the DPH.
