City of Albuquerque: Social Services and Behavioral Health Services for Fiscal Year 2017Deadline: February 19, 2016
The City of Albuquerque has identified the following funding priority: Child witness to domestic violence services. Funding will support an evidence-based program, targeting children who have witnessed domestic violence, which reduces short- and long-term developmental and behavioral problems related to the violence that they have witnessed. Successful respondents will: 1) specify the population they intend to serve and the methods used to identify and engage the population; 2) detail what assessments will be used to identify individual participants needs; 3) what therapeutic services will be provided; and 4) detail the licensing and specific trainings staff have or will receive in the evidence based program being proposed. Additionally, successful respondents will justify the choice of target populations with data on the scope of the problem locally.
Successful respondents will propose projects based on research that indicates success with compatible populations, i.e. age, ethnicity, gender, and other criteria. Applicants are encouraged to become familiar with model programs that have indicated promising results from diverse therapeutic approaches, including the Child Witness to Violence Project (CWVP) and the Child Trauma Research Project. Replication of either of these projects is not a requirement; however, successful respondents should address major issues raised by these projects if they elect to provide individual therapy as part of their proposal.
Nine priority neighborhoods have been identified: Alta Monte, Barelas, Santa Barbara Martineztown, Trumbull, Crest Planning Area, West Mesa, Sawmill, Downtown Core, and San Jose.
Amount: A total of $147,000 will be awarded to support an evidence-based program.
Eligibility: An agency which is a unit of state or local government and/or an agency currently incorporated as a nonprofit corporation, duly registered and in good standing with the Secretary of the State of New Mexico, which has 501(c)(3) status, and which has demonstrated capability in providing the services for which it is applying is an eligible responder.
Programs supported, in whole or in part, must be targeted to residents of Albuquerque. In accordance with the Administrative Requirements, programs must target residents of Albuquerque whose annual family incomes are at or below 80% of the median family income for the Albuquerque Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) as established by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, unless otherwise specified.
Note: One mandatory pre-proposal meeting will be held on January 26, 2016.
