RFQ Issued Seeking Evaluator for Denver Social Impact Bond

CSH, Enterprise Community Partners, Social Impact Solutions and the City and County of Denver are pleased to issue a Request for Qualifications related to the evaluation of a social impact investment initiative in Denver that will provide supportive housing to chronically homeless individuals who also struggle with mental health and substance use challenges. The initiative will connect up to 300 chronically homeless individuals that are high utilizers of public services with supportive housing and intensive case management. The program aims to address the challenges that vulnerable individuals experience in obtaining and sustaining stable housing, while also reducing Denver’s criminal justice and emergency health systems costs.

This RFQ seeks to solicit information and statements of qualifications from independent evaluation entities interested in and qualified to conduct a robust and rigorous evaluation for this initiative. The selected evaluator(s) will work closely with initiative partners over the next several years to design, structure and implement a comprehensive evaluation that will include an impact evaluation, cost-benefit analysis and implementation/process study. This opportunity presents a unique and exciting opportunity to evaluate a supportive housing initiative within the context of a social impact initiative.

An information session about this RFQ will be held via webinar on November 4th, 2014 from 12:00pm – 1:30pm EST. Instructions on how to RSVP for the webinar are included in the RFQ document. Participation is strongly encouraged but not mandatory.
