City of Springfield issues RFP to expand homeless and housing services


The City of Springfield is soliciting proposals through 5 p.m. Aug. 18 from non-profit partners for Community Development Block Grant COVID-19 (CDBG-CV) funding for the acquisition, construction, and/or rehabilitation of community transitional housing facilities, or public services that will serve the homeless while also preventing, preparing for, and/or responding to the coronavirus (COVID-19).

The City is applying for up to $2 million of Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act Community Development Block Grant (CDBG-CV) funds from the Missouri Department of Economic Development. CDBG-CV funding must be used for eligible activities that clearly tie back to the prevention, preparation and/or response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including priority unmet needs related to community facilities and public services. 

In a 2020 survey, Springfield citizens identified homeless services, transitional housing and homeless shelters as top priorities among the public service categories as part of the public input process for the City’s five-year Consolidated Plan to submit to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to continue to receive entitlement funding from the agency. 


For more information about submitting a proposal, please contact Bob Atchley, 417-864-1308 or [email protected]. Media are asked to contact Cora Scott at 417-380-3352 or [email protected].
