Berkeley, California (Tuesday, November 20, 2018) - The City of Berkeley is seeking proposals from nonprofits and government entities that provide services to low-income Berkeley residents. 

This request for proposal, known as an RFP, is for programs and services that support low-income people in Berkeley over four years, from July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2023.  

For fiscal year 2019, approximately $8 million will be made available to fund a variety of programs including homeless services, childcare, youth programs, housing development, housing rehabilitation, health services, disability programs, employment training, senior services, legal assistance, and advocacy as well as others.

"The funding of our community agencies is a key vehicle for the City to create a healthier, more resilient and inclusive Berkeley," says Dee Williams-Ridley.  "We look forward to partnering with community based organizations to provide critical services to Berkeley residents".

Interested applicants can review application materials on our website and should complete the on-line application  by January 4, 2019 by 5 pm. Nonprofits that want to learn more about eligibility, priority areas, and the application process, should attend the following informational workshop.

Information Workshop 
Monday, November 26, 2018  1-3 PM
Berkeley Main Library
2090 Kittredge Street
Community Meeting Room, 3rd Floor

For further information and to RSVP to the workshop please contact Rhianna Babka at rbabka@cityofberkeley.info

While the funding is not guaranteed for fiscal year 2021 - 2023, grantees will not be required to reapply through an RFP process. Funding for these subsequent years will be reassessed annually based on availability of funds as well as performance of contractors.

Join us on November 26 to learn more about this funding opportunity and apply by 5pm on January 4, 2018 to be considered!
