Louisville Metro solicits two Requests for Information for Federal American Rescue Plan funding
Louisville Metro Government’s Accelerator Team today issued two Requests for Information (RFI) proposals for Environmental Justice, and for Childcare and Early Learning initiatives, outlined in August as among the top priorities for American Rescue Plan (ARP) funding.
“American Rescue Plan funding gives us a significant opportunity to invest in some of our city’s most pressing needs, and that includes environmental justice, and childcare and early learning,” said Mayor Greg Fischer. “As we work to get to the other side of the global COVID-19 pandemic, we must address barriers to get people back into the workforce and ensure everyone has the same degree of protection from environmental and health hazards.”
This RFI seeks comments and ideas on potential environmental justice projects targeted toward disadvantaged individuals or populations disproportionately impacted by the economic consequences of the global COVID-19 pandemic. Project services must be focused in qualified census tracts (QCTs).
This RFI does not constitute a commitment to issue a bid, award a contract, or pay any costs incurred in preparation of a response to this request. LMG will use the information obtained from this RFI process to evaluate the feasibility of environmental justice projects and ways to work with qualified organizations to successfully conduct those projects.
RFIs for Environmental Justice will be accepted until 5 p.m. on Tuesday Dec. 7, 2021. See the RFI (PDF file)
Childcare and Early Learning
This RFI is seeking information from organizations, community advocates and subject matter experts with experience successfully managing childcare projects. The goal is developing childcare and early learning projects to promote healthy childhood environments and enable families to rejoin the workforce. Projects should be targeted toward populations that have been disproportionately impacted by the global COVID-19 pandemic. Project services must be focused in qualified census tracts (QCTs).
RFIs for Childcare and Early Learning initiatives will be accepted until 5 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 9, 2021. See the RFI (PDF File)
