REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS

City of Birmingham, Alabama

Community Development Home for All Operational Capacity Building Opportunity

INTRODUCTION
In the department of Community Development at the City of Birmingham (CoB CD), we envision a Birmingham where all communities thrive. Home is at the heart of this. Thus, we are excited to launch our new pilot program, Home For All, to serve our most chronically unhoused who may be seeking alternative options for safe sleeping that include wrap-around services to prepare for more transitional or permanent supportive housing options. This pilot will also build the capacity of local providers to manage safe sleep while sharing resources to create the conditions people need to move toward sustainable housing. We will work with selected providers to create and operationalize this pilot program to house and support participants to get on a pathway to home. Applicants will propose a 12-month operational budget, and a programmatic and design plan to support the number of residents and micro shelters they are requesting.

PROGRAM GOALS
The CoB CD’s goals for this program include the following:

Meet an immediate need for safe sleeping for our neighbors hardest hit by housing challenges
Strengthen the capacity of public service providers to create proven operational and programmatic partner-led interventions
Create a pathway to permanent housing with consistent case management which research presents leads to the best long-term outcomes for individuals and communities
Assess the efficacy of our pilot and leverage lessons learned for future sustainable housing opportunities
Support a community of practice for providers to learn together

BACKGROUND
This pilot is one step in our journey, but it is a critical one. On any given night there are around 900 people in shelters or unhoused in Jefferson County. Over two hundred and sixty of which are chronically unhoused experiencing at least two episodes of shelter living and have a substantiated need for long term case management and supportive services. On those freezing nights, the difference between no shelter and shelter can mean life and death. Many more are at risk. A financial survey in 2019 shared that 59% of Americans were one paycheck away from experiencing homelessness. The pandemic’s impact over the past two years has only exacerbated that risk and made homelessness a reality for many more. Our pilot supports meeting an immediate need while exploring opportunities to find effective operational and programmatic models that can be an example for cities across the nation.

OVERVIEW
Funding: The City has currently identified funding to potentially support the operation of several Home for All sites for 12 months estimated to begin May 2023, ending May, 2024. Additional funding may become available.
i.    Funds for this solicitation may become renewable annually, depending on the availability of funds, successful performance of contract obligations, and compliance with City of Birmingham mandates. Annual funding may increase or decrease depending on availability of funding.

ii.    All Providers must be willing to comply with grant funding laws and regulations and have the operational capacity to do so. These requirements may include federal record-keeping, reporting and financial requirements and record keeping and data collection that may be required by the City.

iii.    In addition to the City funding currently available, Providers may include other sources of grant funding that may be available to their organization to assist with the cost and implementation of services. Other anticipated sources of funding should be identified in the proposed project budget.

Candidates: Ideal candidates are non profits, religious institutions, community based organizations with a community focused mission, or any 501 c3’s working in the field to support neighbors experiencing homelessness and who are interested in expanding their capacity. Partnerships across multiple organizations and with multiple sectors is encouraged. However, one primary applicant should apply and must be a nonprofit.
