HHS Division of Whole Person Care is seeking additional proposals to increase our established pool of contractors to provide intensive housing-based case management (HBCM), which may be paired with Section 811 vouchers from Marin Housing Authority to create new permanent supportive housing. The vendor pool currently includes Catholic Charities, Community Action Marin, Marin Community Clinics, Ritter Center, and St. Vincent de Paul Society of Marin. These vendors need not apply again to remain in the HBCM pool. Case managers will ensure clients are connected to appropriate services, including healthcare services and mainstream benefits as appropriate. The care plans will focus on housing attainment, increased engagement with services and health care, and decreased engagement with emergency services, and other social determinants of health. The contractor will make the plan available to a multi-disciplinary care team and will actively work on progress toward the identified goals. See Attachment C for a preliminary draft of case manager duties.

Questions and Answers:
Question: Will the targeted population for this funding be solely for Transition Age Youth (TAY)?
Answer: No. There is no age restriction. There may be future Transition Age Youth (TAY) specific funding and we may also use this vendor pool to serve the TAY population in the future.
Question: Will this funding be used to extend City High Utilizer case management roles? Or will this be additional to those?
Answer: This RFP will be used to increase the pool of vendors for all housing case management contracts. For existing contracts, like the City High Utilizer case management, this RFP will meet the procurement requirement that contracts be listed for bid every 5 years. Should new housing case management funding become available in the next 5 years, contractors will be chosen from the pool created by the HBCM RFPs. There is currently no new funding available.
