Investing in a “no wrong door” system for older people, adults with disabilities, and caregivers 

The Aging and Disability Services Division of the City of Seattle Human Services Department (HSD) is seeking applications from a diverse group of agencies interested in helping older adults, adults with disabilities and their caregivers maintain their quality of life and age in place by connecting people with programs and services in a “no wrong door system.”   

Eligible participants include older adults (age 60+), adults with disabilities (18+) and unpaid caregivers (18+) living in King County. Participants are supported through a continuum of services including: 

  • Information, Assistance, and Outreach  
  • Regional Coordination  
  • Care Coordination  
  • TCARE® Assessment and Care Planning  
  • Respite and Emergency Respite Coordination  
  • Caregiver Counseling, Support Groups, Training and Consultation 

This is an open and competitive process, with up to$4,265,950 available through this RFQ from Older Americans Act, Senior Citizens Services Act, State Family Caregiver, Seattle General Fund, and Title XIX Medicaid Admin Claiming funds. 

HSD will offer two information sessions, one virtual and one in-person, which will be recorded and made available on HSD’s Funding Opportunities webpage. Any agency interested in learning more about this RFQ is encouraged to attend the sessions and ask questions. 

Initial awards will be made for the period of January 1, 2025 – December 31, 2025.  While it is the City’s intention to continue funding resulting from this opportunity on an annual basis through the 2028 program year, future funding will be contingent upon performance and funding availability. Applicants that are determined qualified but not awarded funding will remain on service roster(s) for the duration of the investment period.    

For more information, and all RFQ materials, please visit HSD’s Funding Opportunities web page: Completed application packets are due by 12:00 p.m. noon Pacific Time on Tuesday, May 28, 2024.
