RFP – Project Management Services for Community Needs Assessment

Rhode Island Community Action Association


Full RFP (4 pages)

Deadline for proposals is 4:30 pm April 22, 2016


The Rhode Island Community Action Association is seeking proposals from a consultant, organization, or firm to provide project management services in preparation and completion of the 2016 statewide Community Needs Assessment.

A statewide community needs assessment will give each Community Action Agency a vehicle for evaluating needs in the communities they serve, and it will be the means for coordinating various assessments of need.

The Community Needs Assessment will evaluate poverty in Rhode Island and its causes. What are people’s needs, what resources exist to meet those needs, and are the resources adequate?  The completed Needs Assessment will guide strategic planning, develop targeted investments strategies, identify funding priorities, and inform the allocation of resources from the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG).
