Request for Proposals


ALTCEW publishes Requests for Proposals annually for programs funded by the Washington State Senior Citizens Services Act, Titles III-B, III-C, III-D, III-E and Elder Abuse of the Older Americans Act and State General Funds. ALTCEW contracts for services in a four-year cycle. The initial contract period may be extended with annual contract extensions for up to an additional three (3) years by mutual agreement of both parties.  Contract extensions are subject to:

  • the availability of funding
  • the continued high priority of need for a specific service and method of service delivery
  • satisfactory contract performance during the prior period of operation
  • the willingness of a service provider to accept a contract for the contract period
  • mutual agreement between ALTCEW and a service provider on contractual provisions, including compensation for the term of the contract period

If interested in receiving notification for when Request for Intent (RFI) or Request for Qualifications (RFQ) are released, please email and request to be added to our procurement distribution list.
