Request for Proposals: Developing and Implementing Protocols and Practices for Participant and Community Safety at Harm Reduction Programs

Nov 14, 2023

With support from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), NACCHO is seeking to identify a Contractor to help develop guidance on creating and implementing safety protocols and practices for fixed-site harm reduction programs, including those operated at, or by, LHDs. Guidance will be developed with input from fixed-site harm reduction programs, including those who have and have not developed formal protocols or practices to address safety of participants, staff, and others in the community. These protocols and practices can include de-escalation strategies, Mental Health First Aid, and other trauma-informed approaches to safety. Safety in this context is understood through the lens of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Harm Reduction Framework’s pillars and supporting principles to promote equity, rights, and reparative social justice, be non-coercive, and respect autonomy, and promote safety ‘as defined by people who use drugs, families, and community.’

Funds will be awarded through a fixed-price contract, in which contractors are reimbursed for completion of deliverables outlined in the agreement. The maximum available funding for this contract is $50,000.

Submissions must be electronic, in pdf format. The deadline for submission is 11:59pm, Eastern Standard Time, Friday, December 1, 2023. Decisions will be made, and applicants will be notified of their selection status, no later than Friday, December 8, 2023. Proposals should be submitted via e-mail to [email protected]. Access the request for proposals here.
