It is the responsibility of the Applicant to review all Attachments listed below for additional details regarding this Funding Opportunity.

The issuance of this Funding Opportunity in no way constitutes a commitment by IDPH to award a contract.

  Purpose

The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) # 58820029 is to solicit applications that will enable the Iowa Department of Public Health (referred to as Department) to select the most qualified applicant to provide services that apply an expedited Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) model to prevent overdose deaths from the use and misuse of licit (not forbidden by law) and illicit drugs (forbidden by law), in the thirteen (13) counties identified as highest-need (see Section 1.03).

The SPF model represents a five-step, data driven process used to 1) assess needs; 2) build capacity and get stakeholders in place; 3) engage in a strategic planning process with stakeholders; 4) implement a strategic plan; and 5) evaluate processes and outcomes. In order to reduce or expedite the time it takes for counties to begin the #3 Planning and #4 Implementation steps, the first two SPF steps #1 Needs Assessment and #2 Capacity Building will be completed during the application process.  Cultural competency and sustainability are embedded in all five SPF steps.

The Department is actively working to strengthen our capacity to address health inequities in Iowa. Health equity is defined as the attainment of the highest possible level of health for all people by achieving the environmental, social, economic and other conditions in which all people have the opportunity to attain their highest possible level of health. This grant promotes health equity through the Strategic Prevention Framework model and its guiding principle step Cultural Competency which adheres to and promotes 15 Cultural and Linguistic Appropriate Service (CLAS) Standards.  Use of CLAS is a way to improve the quality of services provided to all individuals, which will ultimately help reduce health disparities and achieve health equity.
