Funding Opportunities & Current Projects

NeighborImpact Warming Shelter RFP 2018-19

NeighborImpact plans to provide funding to support organizations interested in providing warming shelter services to homeless individuals and/or families in the communities of Bend, La Pine, Madras, Prineville, Redmond, Sisters and/Warm Springs during the winter of 2018-19.

The funding will be in the form of a grant, with the intent of funding operational and facilities‐based costs for providing warming shelter services. These funds are not available for use in regards to Transitional Housing, Homelessness Prevention, Supportive In-Home Services or Community Capacity Building.

Organizations that received warming shelter funds last year may submit a Letter of Intent and a 2018-2019 budget in lieu of a full proposal. This exception is provided as long as the program elements, scope of work and populations served have not changed from last year’s submittal.  NeighborImpact must receive your letter by Monday, October 22, 2018 at 4:30 pm.

NeighborImpact is interested in expanding funding to warming shelters/centers that are open during the daytime hours. As this is a new opportunity for this funding cycle, all proposers interested in offering daytime hours service must submit a full proposal.

The due date for this RFP is Monday, October 22nd at 4:30 PM.
