PURPOSE

At December 11, 2003 Commission

meeting, OAPP was asked to report

on two issues:

RFP application and appeals process

Client eligibility standards required of providers

CHALLENGE

Recognizing that we’re in an era of

shrinking resources coupled with

expanding need, we have to find

ways to target our services towards

those most in need and most

disenfranchised.

The EMA can accomplish this effort

through:

Modifying program design, and

Using eligibility requirements.

rfp process
RFP PROCESS

During Year 13, five RFPs released:

Peer Support
