What We Are Looking for

OUR OBJECTIVE WITH THIS RFP:

The objective with this RFP is to increase LGBT+ residents’ access to and inclusion in health care and wellness services that address their physical and mental health needs.

In light of the coronavirus pandemic, the Foundation is focusing on health care service needs of our LGBT+ residents. We believe Broward should be a place where LGBT+residents have ample access to health care services and equal opportunities to seek prevention and treatment.  While the social determinants of health are critical for LGBT+ individuals’ well-being and can be part of your proposal it still must meet the objective of this RFP.  

APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS:

  • The RFP is aimed at non-LGBT+ organizations to create and/or enhance their health care services for LGBT+ populations. The intent is to make non-LGBT+ organizations inclusive, welcoming and fully accepting of LGBT+ residents to utilize what you offer to improve their health outcomes.  An LGBT+ missioned organization may apply but must demonstrate collaboration with a non-LGBT+organization to ensure an LGBT+ focus is embedded within their organization’s programs and services. This is important to increase the number of non-LGBT+ organizations that proactively engage the LGBT+community.
  • Letters of support from the collaborating organization(s) that outline their role and responsibilities throughout the project are required.
  • Proposal must clearly present the implementation plan to serve vulnerable LGBT+ residents who have critical health care needs and require social and health support services to improve their health outcomes.

OUTCOME:

Submit your best and most creative proposal that will demonstrate how LGBT+ residents will achieve improved health outcomes as measured by:

  • Number of LGBT+ residents that access health care services that address their physical and/or mental health (including social isolation)
  • Measurement of the health improvement by the LGBT individuals served.
  • LGBT+residents report feeling welcome, respected and receiving proper and sensitive care by medical providers as it relates to their physical and mental health.
  • Number of LGBT+ residents enrolled in a health insurance program.
