New RFP Opportunity: Integrating Health Care and Supportive Housing for Homeless Frequent Users of Hospitals in Los Angeles

CSH, with support from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation and the UniHealth Foundation, is pleased to announce the availability of funding to support the creation of, access to and stability in supportive housing for frequent users of hospital emergency and inpatient departments in Los Angeles County. The goal of CSH’s Frequent Users Systems Engagement (FUSE) pilot identifies and houses 60 homeless frequent users through regional hospital-FQHC-housing collaborations using the Economic Roundtable’s 10th Decile Triage Tool.  Collaboratives to date include the Westside and Downtown Los Angeles.

CSH is seeking to fund a new healthcare–housing collaborative between a homeless service provider, housing provider, federal qualified health care center (FQHC) and a hospital, that partners to identify, support, and house 10 chronically homeless frequent users of health services during the project period. Target geographic regions include South L.A., South Bay, San Gabriel Valley, and San Fernando Valley. Project proposals may range from $90,000 – $100,000 over a grant period of one year. CSH is seeking proposals from teams of homeless service providers, hospitals, FQHCs, and housing developers.

The FUSE collaborative  will be selected through the Home for Good Spring 2012 Request for Proposals (RFP).  As part of the Los Angeles Home For Good plan, public and private funders have created a Funders Collaborative to align funding for permanent supportive housing.  The Home For Good Funders Collaborative has created a single request for proposals, aligned values and priorities, and will make funding decisions collaboratively.  To access the online portal, please go to www.partnerunitedla.org and enter basic information about your organization. Once we have received your request for a user ID, United Way will email your organization a log in name and password to the online portal.

Online applications must be submitted by April 20, 2012 at 5:00 p.m. The successful team will be notified by June 14, 2012.
