The 2012-2013 Alameda County-Oakland CAP RFP is closed.
The City of Oakland’s Department of Human Services receives federal Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) funding from the California Department of Community Services and Development (CSD) to help fight the war on poverty. The goal of the Alameda County-Oakland Community Action Partnership (AC-OCAP) is to maximize the impact of CSBG funding throughout the City of Oakland and Alameda County (excluding the City of Berkeley) by supporting anti-poverty program and services that lift low-income individuals and families out of a life of poverty into self-sufficiency.
2012-2013 RFP SUMMARY
Proposed programs and services must promote self-sufficiency and/or improve the conditions of low-income residents living in poverty in one or more of three priority focus areas: Job Training/Education & Employment, Community/Economic Development, and Supportive Services. Agencies/Organizations serving Oakland’s low-income residents MUST be located in the City of Oakland. Through the RFP process, approximately fifteen programs will receive a 2-year CSBG grant ranging from $20,000 - $50,000 per calendar year. The maximum award amount is $50,000 for services provided to Oakland’s low-income residents; and $50,000 for services provided to Alameda County’s (excluding the City of Berkeley) low-income residents. Therefore, if an applicant is providing services to both Oakland and Alameda County low-income residents, the total maximum grant award is $100,000 per calendar year.
Non-profit organizations with 501(c)(3) status, local government agencies, and faith-based organizations providing services throughout the City of Oakland and Alameda County (excluding the City of Berkeley) to low-income individuals and families whose income fall below the federal poverty guidelines are eligible to apply.
