2019 Homeless Strategy and Investment Outreach RFQ

The Homeless Strategy and Investment Division of the City of Seattle Human Services Department (HSD) is seeking applications from agencies interested in providing outreach services to support movement toward and access to permanent housing for people experiencing homelessness. This Request for Qualification (RFQ) is a closed, expedited, and competitive process and is only being made available to agencies who previously applied for Outreach and Engagement funding through the 2017 Homeless Investments Request for Proposal (RFP), and met minimum qualifications during application review, and agencies currently funded by HSD to provide Outreach services.

Approximately $244,400 is available through this RFQ. HSD will invest in one to three proposals to support up to three full-time outreach workers to serve homeless people and their neighbors living and working in the First Hill, Capitol Hill, and Chinatown-International District neighborhoods. Initial awards will be made from April 2019 through December 31, 2019. While it is the City's intention to renew agreements resulting from this RFQ through 2020, any future funding beyond December 31, 2019 will be contingent upon performance and funding availability.
