Guided by RHA’s Theory of Change, the Non-Congregate Alternatives to Shelter RFP is intended to extend Seattle’s continuum of comprehensive, person-centered shelter solutions. The RHA expects to award funds for up to three projects that will:

  • Ensure people living without shelter are safe and healthy, and prevent the spread of diseases such as COVID-19.   
  • Provide safe alternatives to encampments for people experiencing unsheltered homelessness in Seattle through the development of non-congregate shelters that emphasize rapid exits to permanent housing.  
  • Promote system transformation to rapidly transition individuals out of non-congregate shelters and into permanent housing.

Additionally, the RFP applicants may apply for one or more RFP categories relevant to their organization’s area of expertise. RFP application categories will include: 

  • Property Acquisition and/or Site Development (open to for-profit organizations)
  • Program Operations 
  • Behavioral Health Services
  • Housing Search Services
