ADS issues Community Living Connections RFQ

On October 1, 2018, the Human Services Department—of which Aging and Disability Services is a division—announced a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for Community Living Connections.

The purpose of this RFQ is to identify and develop a roster of qualified providers to deliver an array of services to older people, adults with disabilities, and their caregivers living in King County. Services include information, assistance, and outreach; individual consultation and support; care coordination; regional coordination; and supportive services for caregivers such as counseling, support groups, and training.

No funds will be awarded as a result of this RFQ. Following the RFQ, qualified agencies will be invited to participate in a collaborative process to form a network of service providers. This process will begin in early 2019 and will culminate in contracts estimated to begin January 1, 2020. Approximately $3,719,266.00 may be contracted as a result of this process.
