The Office of Community Empowerment and Opportunity (OCEO) seeks to identify community-based multi-service agencies with the capacity to connect low-income individuals, at or below 125% of the Federal Poverty Line, to public benefits. The purpose of this pre-funding request for information (RFI) is to give organizations an opportunity to inform OCEO on their competencies, existing low-income client base, and any additional information that may be relevant to this effort, specifically within Spanish speaking LEP communities. OCEO will select one community based multi-service agency as a Benefits Access Center. The Benefit Access Center will be provided with a screening tool, financial and programmatic support, and training from Benefits Data Trust (BDT). OCEO encourages all entities that may be interested in partnering with OCEO on benefits enrollment to prepare a response to this RFI.
The deadline for submission is Friday, April 5, 2019.
