NHCYCC Innovative Supports for Children with Chronic Health Conditions-Request for Proposals

CYCC is issuing this request for proposal (RFP) to identify an organization(s) or non-governmental agency that has identified a need in the area of special education and has a project(s) to address this need but for a lack of funds.  Funding can be split between different projects and organizations. Organization (s) must perform its work within New Hampshire.

The Council for Youth with Chronic Conditions (CYCC) is a parent-focused State council committed to being a voice for families of children with chronic health conditions. We educate and inform policy makers and stakeholders of the unique challenges and opportunities to expand access to affordable, quality health care, supportive work environments, and community based services and to celebrate the resiliency of children and their families.

Over fifty-five thousand children throughout the Granite State have chronic health conditions. Many of these children receive special education and related supports and services through either an Individualized Education Program or 504 plan.  Children with disabilities, including those with chronic health conditions, have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19. The recent experiments with remote and hybrid learning have adversely affected these children in ways that are not felt by their peers. Therefore, the CYCC is looking to fund innovative ways to address these issues in the hope that these negative effects are not long-term.

To respond to this RFP, the CYCC requires the following:

  • Organizational contact information, description, and mission statement
  • A description of the issue/need and its impact on children with chronic health conditions
  • A description of the project and how it will address the issue/need described above
  • A general timeline including short and long-term goals
  • Bios of key staff who would be assigned to this project
  • Include narrative describing experience completing project of this type
  • A detailed budget and narrative explaining how the funds will be used to complete this project
