HRC RFQ 87 - Grantee Capacity Building

Intent of this Request for Qualifications (RFQ): Through this RFQ, HRC intends to create a prequalified list of organizations from which it may choose to issue grant awards in two service areas. Service Area 1 is for organizations who have received one or more Dream Keeper Initiative grants and who will engage in capacity building to advance their infrastructure and abilities to meet one or more of the following goals: increase the organizations’ capability to compete for funding; report out on their work and the impact of programming; and enhance financial management and fiscal infrastructure. Service Area 2 is for a nonprofit organization to provide organizational assessments and capacity building cohort facilitation services.

Anticipated Grant Term: The anticipated term for grants resulting from this RFQ may last up to three (3) years. Actual grant terms may vary, depending upon service and project needs at the City’s sole and absolute discretion. Applicants selected for resulting grants(s) must be available to commence work on or after February 20, 2024. Thus, the anticipated grant term for this RFQ is February 20, 2024 to February 19, 2027.

Anticipated Grant Budget: The maximum amount of funding for this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is $150,000 per year in Service Area 1 and $200,000 per year in Service Area 2. Awards may be for less than or equal to the maximum amount. HRC anticipates awarding ten (10) awards in Service Area 1 and one (1) award in Service Area 2.
