Greetings,

Interested in serving the community? Come join us in reshaping the future! On behalf of the Aging, Disability and Veterans Services Division (ADVSD), as the Division Director, I am excited to announce that we will be opening up our procurement process to contract with community organizations.

At Multnomah County, we are continuously committed to examining the ways our policies, procedures, practices, and organizational culture contribute to injustice and institutional racism, as well as opportunities for fairness, inclusion, belonging, and community well-being for all. Our goal is to use strategies to target resources that are culturally responsive and appropriate to our communities most negatively impacted by systemic racism, health inequity, and barriers to opportunity and to advance positive outcomes for all our residents. 

With that in mind, please consider attending our Community Services for Older Adults Request for Programmatic Qualifications (RFPQ) Community Engagement workshops to learn about the qualifications to apply, registering in Multco Marketplace, and our procurement and contracting process. If you are interested in this funding opportunity, please click here to complete a survey so we can learn more about your organization.

If your agency provides services to the older adults, family caregivers, and adults with disabilities in your community and you are interested in learning more about how to partner and contract with ADVSD please bookmark this page and watch for upcoming community engagement events. Services include case management, family caregiver support, nutrition services (congregate meals and home delivered meals), health promotion activities, and providing information, referrals, support, and connection to services or service coordination. We hope to see you soon at one of our upcoming events. The ADVSD Community Services team is looking forward to answering your questions.
