Senior Activities Committee seeking RFPs
Senior Resources of West Michigan, the administrator of the Muskegon County Senior Millage, is seeking proposals to provide services and activities to the aging through the senior millage. Funding is available to organizations which provide services to persons 60 years of age and older within the service area of Muskegon County. Interested parties may obtain specifics to submit a letter of intent, service and activity standards at: www.seniorresourceswmi.org/muskegon-county-senior-millage.
Proposals may be written for a variety of services and activities for older adults, including, but not limited to access services, general services, nutritional services, supportive services, and wellness and fitness, recreational and social activities.
All letter of intents will be considered; however, Senior Resources is specifically seeking proposals for new services, community events aimed towards large groups of adults 60 years or older, and information sessions regarding Medicare/Medicaid.
Letters of intent are due no later than December 14, 2018 by 3 p.m.
Applying organizations must have the ability and willingness to provide monthly demographic reports, including, but not limited to Muskegon County zip code and township codes, and monthly financial status reports for millage-funded services.
The funding requests are for one year, renewable for two additional years, upon successful evaluations. For more information, contact: Damian Jarocki, Grants Managers, Senior Resources of West Michigan, 560 Seminole Road, Muskegon, MI 49444; 231-733-3593 or email RFP@seniorresourceswmi.org.
