Project: Healthy Women Healthy Baby Zones Ref. #: HSS-24-007 Type: RFP Status: Open Open Date: Dec 21st 2023, 8:00 AM EST Questions Due Date: Jan 16th 2024, 10:00 PM EST Close Date: Mar 6th 2024, 1:00 PM EST Days Left: < 1 Project Description:The Department is looking for key community organizations, the faith-based community and other stakeholders to address community needs with a range of services and or programs that will mitigate the social context conditions and risk factors that conspire to compromise the health and wellbeing of vulnerable populations, especially women of childbearing age. This RFP seeks a contractor to 1.) serve as the backbone organization to subcontract, support and manage the key organizations directly delivering the needed interventions and, 2.) transition the back-bone role to a local community-based organization by the end of the cycle. Two of the top drivers for infant mortality in Delaware are preterm births and low birthweight births. This RFP seeks
proposals for strategies addressing challenges across the state, with special emphasis on the HWHB Zones, with the ultimate goal of reducing preterm and low birth weight rates. The awarded contractor will support the Department though facilitation and project management to implement the HWHB Zones SDOH (social determinants of health) project that will provide grants for 3 to 6 subcontractor organizations (community-based faith-based and other stakeholder organizations) by September 2024. The contractor will use a collective impact approach to ensure the subcontractors are fully engaged around intent and implantation to successfully implement interventions to address SDOH driving poor birth outcomes. The contractor will provide operational oversight (administrative and financial) to the subcontractor projects on behalf of the Department. The awarded contractor will meet the following essential core functions: • Establish a sustainable financing mechanism for supporting the implementation of promising SDOH interventions (through an established “mini grant” process) and the provision of needed planning and evaluation services. • Provide administrative and fiscal resource support to the subcontracting organizations and the ongoing measurement and evaluation of impacts. • Provide lead support to the SDOH Advisory Committee to oversee all components of the HWHB SDOH Initiative and steer its path forward. • Provide technical assistance to the selected “mini grant” organizations in data collection/tracking measures, budgeting and in continuous quality improvement. • Identify, train, and deploy a local community-based organization (CBO), mid-cycle with the goal of having the CBO fully assume the role of backbone organization by the end of the cycle. Include a brief synopsis of the project management approach/activities planned for overseeing this work. Include a systematic chart to show flow of communication and supervision/monitoring pathways of project staff, subcontractors, and the program governance through the “Advisory Committee”. Summarize the coordination among key program, fiscal, and QI/technical assistance staff. Outline the methodology for soliciting, the process of awarding “mini grants” and the fiscal and program monitoring of contracts and subcontracts. Include a plan for recruiting, training, and transitioning a local CBO to the back-bone organization role for the mini-grant program.
