Purpose of the Request for Proposal (RFP)’s

The purpose of these RFP’s is to solicit proposals from qualified service providers wishing to contract with Volunteer Florida to provide Disaster Case Management services for the 2023 Hurricane Idalia (DR-4734-FL). The RFP process is intended to provide Volunteer Florida with information to assist in the selection process.

Purpose of Disaster Case Management (DCM) Program

Disaster Case Management (DCM) as defined in the FEMA 2017 Program Guidance is a time-limited process that involves a partnership between a case manager and a disaster survivor (also known as a “client”) to develop and carry out a Disaster Recovery Plan.  This partnership provides the client with a single point of contact to facilitate access to a broad range of resources.  The process involves an assessment of the client’s verified disaster-caused unmet needs, development of a goal-oriented plan that outlines the steps necessary to achieve recovery, organization and coordination of information on available resources that match the disaster-caused unmet needs, the monitoring of progress toward reaching the recovery plan goals, and when necessary, client advocacy.
