New Mexico Indian Affairs Department: Basic Emergency Social Care Services for the Albuquerque Area Native American PopulationDeadline: January 26, 2018
The Basic Emergency Social Care Services for the Albuquerque Area Native American Population program furthers the New Mexico Indian Affairs Department’s (IAD’s) mission to improve the quality of life for the state’s Indian citizens. Funding is available to support basic emergency (crisis) social services for the indigent Native American population residing in the Albuquerque Metropolitan Area. The program is also designed to identify and collect basic numerical information on the Native Americans served through the services funded by IAD.
The anticipated project services to be conducted by the Offeror from February 2018 through June 2018 include:
- Ensure basic human welfare by providing: food services for one meal each day; food box distribution; emergency housing vouchers or referrals; personal hygiene facilities and supplies; clothing distribution; referrals to supportive services (e.g., behavioral health, medical, counseling, and employment opportunities); and transportation “tokens” or rides by scheduled shuttle services to supportive or housing services.
- Ensure access to safe, hygienic, semi-private overnight accommodations and referrals to affordable housing solutions.
- Ensure availability of Albuquerque-area resource and community services information (i.e. hand-outs, flyers, brochures, notices) on existing programs and services that highlight locations, contacts, and program synopses.
- Ensure collection of basic data (i.e. homeless census, guest profiling) on the Native American guests receiving services and monthly reporting to the New Mexico Indian Affairs Department.
Amount: One contract award will be made.
