Community Health Advocates RFP - Organizations that serve Westchester, Erie and Monroe

Community Health Advocates (CHA), a program of the Community Service Society of New York (CSS), invites non-profit community-based organizations to participate in this Request for Proposals (RFP).

CHA anticipates awarding three contracts to organizations serving Westchester, Erie and Monroe counties to provide post-enrollment individual assistance and education to individuals and small businesses regarding health care and health insurance.  The $45,000-$70,000 grant award is for a 12-month period but will be pro-rated based on the contract’s actual start date. CSS expects to announce the award on May 31, 2018 via the CHA website, www.communityhealthadvocates.org. The CHA contract will likely begin on June 1, 2018 and likely end on March 31, 2019, with the expectation of annual renewal. Project grant and dates are contingent upon a State award to CSS and receipt of State funding.

Questions on the RFP are due by Friday, April 27, 2018 and should be sent to Charfp2018@cssny.org. Answers will be posted on the CHA website on Wednesday, May 7th.
