Grants to New Mexico nonprofit organizations and government agencies to provide services for seniors (ages 60 and older) in Bernalillo County. Funding is intended for a range of at-risk, social, and nutritional services to allow seniors to age with dignity in the community.
Vulnerable seniors should be able to access and utilize the appropriate care and support resources of their choice so they age in place and maintain their health, safety, independence, and dignity. Seniors should be able to maintain a connection to their community and access services that support their health and well-being.
The purpose of this Request for Proposals (RFP) is to solicit effective proposals from qualified non-profit organizations interested in providing services for populations in need of specific services. The City of Albuquerque is focused on improving the well-being of all people and has identified racial equity as a priority goal to address longstanding, racially disparate economic and social outcomes. In addition, the Department of Family and Community Services prioritizes investment in services that can demonstrate improved outcomes related to the customer’s needs.
The Department of Family and Community Services has established a priority to fund projects that lead to improved outcomes so seniors are able to age with dignity. This involves a focus on addressing the social determinants of health to achieve greater well-being and equity for all. Substantial evidence confirms the link between social, economic and physical conditions and health outcome disparities. Social determinants of health include access to healthcare services, availability of services to support housing and behavioral health stability, lifelong education options, public safety, and social services.
