Small Behavioral Health Providers Capital and/or Startup Services. July 7, 2023.

The goal of this Request for Proposals is to fund small providers in Bernalillo County to further develop the continuum of behavioral health services and diversify services available to the community. Specifically, the Behavioral Health Initiative seeks to provide grants to smaller behavioral health agencies currently operating with an annual budget of $500,000 or less, to assist in pursuing the next appropriate milestone necessary to advance behavioral health services in Bernalillo County. These dollars will come with additional technical assistance from the Behavioral Health Initiative to ensure these agencies have the support needed to provide effective services. County staff will work with selected providers on the development of performance and outcome measures, and service provision for the monitoring of program inputs, outputs, and outcomes related to the program intervention experienced by the target Population. Bernalillo County will use this RFP to fund one or more interventions at a total cost not to exceed $2,000,000 dollars over a three-year term. This funding is one-time dollars and will not recur.

NDN Collective Abundance Fund. July 11, 2023.

The NDN Collective Abundance Fund provides wealth building grants to Indigenous people who reside within the tri-state region of Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. The program supports the re-building of generational wealth, while beginning to address the wealth gap among Indigenous individuals and families.  This is just one action that supports the advancement of our work to Defend, Develop, and Decolonize. We see this grant as an opportunity to advance the dismantling of colonial thinking that created exploitative and extractive economic systems that have proven un-useful for our People and communities.  This includes centering this work around a redefinition of wealth from our Indigenous perspective, rather than the western definition of wealth that is rooted in capitalism which promotes the accumulation of money and material possessions often without regard to the protection of people and mother earth.

School Based Health Centers Mobile Unit Services. July 28, 2023.

The Bernalillo County (“County”) Office of the County Manager, Criminal Justice, and Behavioral Health Initiatives, through the Purchasing Section of the Procurement and Business Services Department (“Purchasing”), is soliciting proposals from Offerors to provide primary and preventative health care services in schools and Community in Bernalillo County through two School Based Health Center mobile units. One or two service providers will be awarded up to $800,000 recurring funding annually.

The Outdoor Equity Fund. Applications accepted on a rolling basis through December 2023 or until funding is expended.

Access to the outdoors is a basic human right – yet it’s one that has often been denied to many of our youth. As a result, our underrepresented kids haven’t had the chance to experience some of the best of New Mexico: Its outside world. The Outdoor Equity Fund (OEF) was created to ensure equitable access to the outdoors for all youth. The grant supports transformative outdoor experiences that foster stewardship and respect for New Mexico’s lands, waters, and cultural heritage.
