Contracting with ORR: Considerations as You Craft Your Proposal

Monday, May 10th

2:00 pm - 3:30 pm CST

3:00 pm - 4:30 pm EST

12:00 pm - 1:30 pm PST

There are multiple current opportunities for providers to partner with the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), including as contractors or grantees providing foster care or residential shelter services, among other needs. But what is the difference between the RFQ (Request for Quote), the single source grant application process, and the forecasted RFP? And what details should you consider as you create your budget and your proposal narrative?  

If you are a provider who would like to join in this work as aligned with your capacity and expertise, but you have questions and need to learn more about what it means to contract directly with ORR and serve unaccompanied children, this webinar is for you. Participants considering providing UC care through ORR will learn general information about service delivery details they should consider and budget for and have an opportunity to ask clarifying questions of current ORR-contracted UC providers. There will be ongoing opportunities to access technical assistance after this webinar.
