HHS Accelerator WeCare RFP Released

October 24, 2017

On October 3rd, the New York City Human Resources Administration’s Division of Customized Assistance Services released a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Wellness, Comprehensive Assessment, Rehabilitation, and Employment (WeCARE) Program. Approximately $170 million in total funding over three years is available through this RFP for qualified applicants to operate and implement an enhanced design of the WeCARE Program, which will address previous difficulties with this program by allowing the contractors to receive payment primarily through line-item reimbursement rather than through achievement of milestones.

There will be an optional Pre-Proposal Conference for applicants on October 11th. Interested parties may RSVP via email no later than October 10th to Accoprocurements@hra.nyc.gov with “RSVP WeCARE Program” in the subject line and the full names of attendees in the email. Questions should be submitted to Giovanni Lombardi at lombardig@hra.nyc.gov. Applications are due by November 16th.

Both a summary of key provisions of the RFP and the full RFP are attached. Other documents are available in the HHS Accelerator.
