Contract for services to Florida nonprofit organizations in eligible areas to provide recovery assistance to disaster survivors of the 2018 Hurricane Michael. Recovery assistance should include mobilization and outreach strategies, service provision, and a demobilization strategy. The full scope of service provision should include intake process, client prioritization, client data sharing, standardization of forms, case management activities, client progress and monitoring, and case closure.

The purpose of the RFP is to solicit proposals from qualified service providers wishing to contract with Volunteer Florida to provide Disaster Case Management services for the 2018 Hurricane Michael (DR-4399-FL). The RFP process is intended to provide Volunteer Florida with information to assist in the selection process. The current period of performance (POP) funding period is October 11, 2018 – October 11, 2020.

Disaster Case Management (DCM) as defined in the FEMA 2017 Program Guidance is a time-limited process that involves a partnership between a case manager and a disaster survivor (also known as a “client”) to develop and carry out a Disaster Recovery Plan. This partnership provides the client with a single point of contact to facilitate access to a broad range of resources. The process involves an assessment of the client’s verified disaster-caused unmet needs, development of a goal-oriented plan that outlines the steps necessary to achieve recovery, organization and coordination of information on available resources that match the disaster-caused unmet needs, the monitoring of progress toward reaching the recovery plan goals, and when necessary, client advocacy. 

Using the TSA number to calculate staffing resulted in the need for approximately 35 Disaster Case Managers plus 5 case management supervisors. 

Funding is allocated by Provider Groups:

  • Group 1: Bay County
  • Group 2: Washington, Holmes, Jackson, and Calhoun Counties
  • Group 3: Gulf, Liberty, Franklin, Gadsden, Leon, Wakulla, and Taylor Counties
