2023 Home-Delivered Meals RFQ

The Aging and Disability Services Division of the City of Seattle Human Services Department (HSD) seeks applications from a diverse group of agencies interested in helping older adults maintain their quality of life and age in place.

The Home-Delivered Meals Program provides meals to older adults who are unable to leave their home unassisted, unable to prepare meals for themselves, and do not have a social support system to help them.

Approximately $2,394,879 is available through this RFQ from the following sources: $1,290,013 in Older Americans Act funds, $418,256 in Washington State funds, $292,106 in Nutrition Services Incentive Program and $394,504 in HSD General Fund dollars.

HSD intends to fund a maximum of three (3) proposals for home-delivered meals. Initial awards will be made for the period of January 1, 2024 - December 31, 2024. While it is the City’s intention to renew agreements resulting from this funding opportunity on an annual basis through the 2027 program year, future funding will be contingent upon performance and funding availability.
