The City of Charlotte is seeking a qualified entity, with a local presence – or a collaborative partnership between qualified entities, each with a local presence – to provide community support services to community members who are experiencing problems related to mental health, depression, poverty, homelessness and/or substance abuse issues. The selected vendor or vendors will provide certified Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and Licensed Behavioral Health Clinicians (Clinicians) to staff a non-law enforcement pilot program to respond to low-risk behavioral health calls for service and assess and connect residents in distress with appropriate services. Vendors are invited to apply to provide either EMTs, Clinicians, or both for this program.
The City of Charlotte aims to improve neighborhood quality of life through a community engagement strategy that ensures children are safe, succeeding in school and supported by their community. An integral component to achieving this goal is providing funding to organizations that deliver high-quality out of school time services to children and youth in high-need neighborhoods.
Since 1978, the City has provided funding to agencies that offer Out of School Time (OST) enrichment programs to Students from low-income families. The programs can be provided at either neighborhood facilities or school facilities. This RFP is to solicit Organizations that provide these Services and evaluate their programs for potential City funding.
