The Allor Foundation Accepting Applications for Reproductive Health Education

The Anna Allor Burdick (ALB) Program seeks to empower young women through education about healthy reproduction in order to broaden and enhance their options in life. The program focuses particularly on young women who have inadequate access to information regarding sexual and reproductive health, including comprehensive and unbiased information on contraception and pregnancy termination. The Foundation is interested in programs serving young women who are disadvantaged by poverty, discrimination, geographic isolation, lack of comprehensive sex education,  

hostile public policy, or other factors leading to inadequate sexual and reproductive health. The ALB Program is particularly interested in supporting new programs or initiatives, or innovations in successful programs. Programs at new or small organizations, including those with a grassroots base, that are capable of delivering excellent services will also be considered.

The ALB Program typically does not support general operations, ongoing programs, or existing staff positions. Programs should:

•have a comprehensive approach to SRH education that includes unbiased information on all options

•include novel ideas or innovative methods of delivering information

•define clear goals and intended outcomes as well as a feasible plan to assess impact and success

•be exemplars for replication if successful

•be economically sustainable if successful

Programs that incorporate advocacy or policy change, consistent with IRS 501(c)(3) status, are of particular interest.

Grant Amount: Grant amounts range from $10,000 to $35,000.

Eligibility: Applicants must be tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service Code and defined as “not a private foundation” under section 509(a) of the Code.

Due Date: Concept letters are due May 1, 2017.

The County of Riverside, Department of Public Social Services (DPSS) seeks qualification packages from qualified vendors for the provision of Shelter Services for Elderly and Dependent adults. DPSS will refer adults to the Contractor for emergency shelter services on an as-needed basis. DPSS is responsible for providing 24-hour emergency and temporary shelter services for elderly, ages 60 and older and dependent adults, ages 18-59. Emergency shelter services are needed for clients who do not possess a medical assessment (including tuberculosis (TB) test clearance). These clients will need to be placed in a private room until the medical assessment and TB clearance is completed. Temporary shelter services are needed for clients who possess a medical assessment (including TB test clearance) and do not require a private room.

Adult Protective Services (APS) generally places elderly or dependent adults in shelters until the situation that brought them to the Department's attention can be resolved and a longer-term living arrangement can be made. The County projects the referrals at 500 occupied beds per year throughout the county. Average shelter stays are 30 days, but can be extended up to 120 days, if agreed in writing by DPSS and vendor.

Emergency and temporary shelters are needed throughout the county in four (4) zones- Western County, Mid & Southwest County, Desert & Eastern County, and Blythe.

Grant Amount: The amount of funds and number of awards are contingent upon the availability of funds.

Eligibility: Potential vendors will be required to obtain and maintain a current CCL (Community Care Licensing Division) Emergency APS Placement Approval allowing the facility to have a revised plan of operation on file with CCL that obligates the Contractor to obtain documentation of a current, new or existing physical exam and TB test for each client by the 7th day of their stay.
