Request For Proposals: Implementation Partner for the Thriving Providers Project in Los Angeles County, CA

Home Grown, in partnership with the Los Angeles County Children and Families First – Proposition 10 Commission (aka First 5 LA), is soliciting proposals from organizations to implement the Thriving Providers Project (TPP) in Los Angeles (LA) County, California.

TPP is a direct cash assistance demonstration project for home-based child care (HBCC) providers. The LA County implementation site of TPP will provide regular, unconditional, unrestricted cash transfers to HBCC providers, specifically Family, Friend and Neighbor (FFN) providers caring for children ages birth to 5 years, over a course of 12-24 months. These cash transfers are leveraged to enhance existing or new programs and services for HBCC offered by community-based organizations.

Applicant organizations should have existing relationships with FFN providers and already be delivering resources to the FFN community in LA County.  

Responses are due via email to info@homegrownchildcare.org by 3:00 PM ET on July 9, 2024. Late proposals will not be accepted.
