Overview

Introduction
The City of Santa Monica invites competitive proposals through the Community
Development (CD) Grants Program for effective human service programs to
address a broad range of community needs in Santa Monica. Eligible non-profit
organizations are encouraged to apply. All applicants must meet the City
Council-approved minimum eligibility requirements, selection criteria, and
funding priorities listed below and in subsequent sections of this Request for
Proposals (RFP).


Community Development (CD) Program – Grant Funding
The City of Santa Monica’s Community and Cultural Services Department
(Human Services Division) collaborates with public and private organizations to
improve the quality of life for Santa Monica residents including children, teens,
and families, persons with disabilities, seniors, and persons who are
low-income or homeless. To this end, the Division provides planning, research,
evaluation and fund development related to human and community service
needs, responds to those needs through direct service provision or through
grants with community agencies, and partners with public and private agencies
throughout the community.

One significant mechanism for addressing needs in Santa Monica is grant
funding through the City’s Community Development (CD) Program.
CD Program funding is guided by three fundamental principles:

   Provide stable funding to well-performing local organizations so that they
    may provide uninterrupted services and focus on program development and
    implementation; Grant renewals are contingent upon demonstration of
    effective annual program performance;

   Act as a “gap funder” for programs that are critical locally but are either
    ineligible or noncompetitive to other funders (e.g., administrative expenses);
    and

   Provide City funds to leverage other funding sources.    This practice
    encourages partnerships that promote the development of more efficient,
    coordinated service delivery.

City staff will collaborate with and support applicants throughout the grant
process. During the proposal review, contract negotiation and the grant term,
City staff may engage individual agencies or groups of similar organizations in
collaborative discussions to clarify gaps in service, strengthen benchmarks,
outputs and outcomes, and plan for changes in programs during subsequent
years.     To ensure effectiveness, accountability and maintain a current
understanding of funded programs, City staff will monitor agencies’
performance through regular site visits and review of grantee program and
fiscal reports.


Community Assessments – Resources and Needs
The CD Program represents a significant City investment to address the
findings of community planning processes. During the current fiscal year,
2006-07, the City has completed a number of evaluations of the human services
offered to the community by the City, the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School
District and local community non-profits. In addition, in response to a City
Council directive to examine the human service needs of City residents, the
Human Services Division conducted Community Voices 2006. The Community
Voices process has involved updating a profile of the Santa Monica community
based on current demographic information; public input from service providers,
residents, Commissioners and other community leaders; and distillations of
task force reports, meetings and other community forums.

Funding recommendations will be based on each applicant’s ability to address
the priorities identified through the following:

   FY 2007-10 CD Program Funding Rationale – as amended and adopted by
    City Council (February 6, 2007)
   Community Voices 2006 (December 2006)
   Evaluation of Santa Monica’s Continuum of Care and Strategic Five-Year Plan
    (December 2006)
   Evaluation of City-funded School-based Mental Health and Support Services
    (January 2007)
   2005 Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count (LAHSA, January 2006)
   FY 2005-10 Consolidated Plan (June 2005)

The reports listed above may be obtained at the offices of the Human Services
Division (located at City Hall, 1685 Main Street, Room 212) or from the Human
Services Division’s website at human-services.smgov.net.

Funding Availability – Operating Grants
A total of $7.5 million in operating grants* is projected to be available in
FY 2007-08 to:

   Continue/Modify a City-funded program
   Expand a City-funded program
   Modify/Expand a program not currently City-funded
   Initiate a new program
   Transition of existing projects to the CD Program (see Appendix I)
     Senior Programs: Congregate Meals
     Santa Monica Homeless Community Court: Supportive Services
     Chronic Homeless Program: Assertive Case Management Team

Funding priority will be given to ongoing, effective programs that meet
important community needs. In addition, funds may be redirected from
programs currently funded by the City to new or expanded programs which
address changing or emerging needs. It will be particularly important for
applicants to clearly demonstrate how their proposed program addresses a
documented need in Santa Monica. Organizations may request funding for
more than one program.

Grant funding is available for qualified programs beginning July 1, 2007
through June 30, 2008. As part of the City’s multi-year funding strategy, all
programs receiving funds in FY 2007-08 may be renewed an additional two
years (FY 2008-09 through FY 2009-10) contingent upon available funds,
effective program performance, and City Council approval. This allows for
grant renewals on an annual, ongoing basis, unless through Commission,
community, agency or City staff input, the City Council determines the need for
significant program change requiring an open, competitive RFP process or
determines that the program is unable to meet its administrative, program or
fiscal requirements.




* Funds may be available for capital and one-time projects. The application for
  capital and one-time projects is under separate cover.

Grant Guidelines

Funding Priorities
On February 6, 2007 the City Council approved the FY 2007-10 CD Program
funding rationale with the following funding priorities:

   Ensure effective services through programs that are coordinated and
    collaborative and designed to provide a more seamless delivery of
    services to people who most need them.

   Improve community awareness of, and access to, the array of
    community programs available to Santa Monica residents.

   Incorporate documented best practices and/or propose to introduce an
    evidenced-based practice that has clear and measurable outcomes.

   Incorporate regional strategies into agency planning efforts.

   Implement a phased-in approach to address key findings and
    recommendations of recently completed community assessments and
    evaluations.

   Leverage non-City funding to serve Santa Monica residents.


Santa Monica is home to a variety of social service resources, yet a repeated
comment heard throughout the Community Voices 2006 process was the
public’s lack of awareness of the resources which exist in the community. This
RFP calls for agency-based and inter-agency strategies for increasing the
community’s knowledge and understanding of the resources available,
including new and innovative ideas for accessing and disseminating information
about existing services available to Santa Monica residents.

Further, to provide a more comprehensive and “one stop” approach to services,
special funding consideration will be given to programs which propose
outreach strategies and service delivery at or in conjunction with existing
community facilities including, but not limited to, Virginia Avenue Park, Police
Activities League, the Senior Recreation Center, public schools, libraries,
hospitals, clinics, community centers and other local human services agencies.

Target Populations/Service Areas
The CD Program provides funding to organizations to improve the quality of life
for Santa Monica residents, with an emphasis on those who are low or moderate
income. Target populations include: children, teens, families, older adults,
seniors, people with disabilities and people who are homeless. Programs may
serve multiple target populations.

Historically, organizations in Santa Monica have developed and proposed a
range of services and strategies to address these target populations. The
Council-approved funding rationale includes the categories below, developed
over the past decade or more, to group programs – recognizing that programs
may work with multiple populations and use a range of service delivery
approaches to achieve desired outcomes.

Children, Teens, and Family Services

   Commit to coordinating case management and mental health services;
    developing case management and internship standards and protocols;
    establishing interagency agreements; and providing well-developed
    information and referral services.

   Develop strong partnerships and propose new strategies to reach and better
    serve Santa Monica families most in need.

   Incorporate best practices to prevent or address gang violence, alcohol and
    drug abuse and other mental health risk factors. These include, but are not
    limited to, the use or pilot of evidenced-based, goal and outcome-driven
    practices or most current modes of prevention and intervention, close
    coordination with other service providers, and the provision of intensive case
    management services.

 Demonstrate focus on strengthening families and supporting parents –
  including families with young children.

Disability Services

   Incorporate documented best practices to serve the target population and
    are able to demonstrate measurable success. Best practices include
    approaches that give clients choice and self-determination as they gain and
    maintain their independent living skills.

   Provide client assistance with independent living, medical health or mental
    health needs, case management, housing placement and retention,

FY 2007-10 Community Development Program
Request for Proposals – Operating Grants                                    Page 5
    educational opportunities and/or employment assistance, in a manner that
    promotes choice and self-determination.

   Advocate for and assist with integrating persons with disabilities into the
    larger community, through housing, employment, recreational and other
    opportunities will also be given special consideration.

   Develop innovative outreach strategies and/or collaborate with other
    community agencies to ensure clients are aware of the full scope of services
    available to them, regardless of their point-of-entry into the system.

Homeless Services

   Serve the primary target populations consistent with recommendations from
    the Homeless Evaluation, including existing programs within the continuum
    of care that have demonstrated effectiveness in linking people to long-term
    case management; mainstream benefits; specialized case management (e.g.,
    mental health, substance abuse, benefits advocacy); emergency shelter,
    temporary and permanent housing and employment assistance services.

   Offer innovative best practices designed to prevent or end homelessness
    including, but not limited to, integrated service teams with assertive, wrap-
    around services; permanent supportive housing including post-placement,
    housing retention services; and homeless prevention for seniors.

   Include strategies that promote a “fair share” approach to homelessness.
    Some of these strategies include: restricting use of brief services to a set
    time or number of visits that can occur without the client seeing a case
    manager, and thereafter, without showing progress on a plan that leads
    back to housing; and for people who recently became homeless or arrived in
    Santa Monica, determine where they were living when they lost their
    housing, or before coming to Santa Monica, and work toward linking them
    with services in the community they came from. In addition, all programs
    funded by the City should focus efforts on homeless people who have been
    in Santa Monica for long periods of time. Further, regional funds secured by
    Santa Monica agencies should be devoted to serving people homeless in
    Santa Monica for the longest period of time rather than directed to
    populations referred from outside of Santa Monica.

   Refer to Appendix I – Transition of Existing Projects to the CD Program – for
    Santa Monica Homeless Community Court: Supportive Services and Chronic
    Homeless Program: Assertive Case Management Team.

Senior Services

   Provide a more cohesive approach to delivering a range of services.
    Organizations that demonstrate a consolidation of fragmented service
    delivery and an approach to a “one-stop shop” model for delivery of social
    services will be a funding priority.

   Incorporate best practices in the areas of service coordination, case
    management of seniors, particularly those with multiple issues or needs, and
    independent living or helping seniors continue living in their homes.

   Refer to Appendix I – Transition of Existing Projects to the CD Program – for
    Senior Programs: Congregate Meals.

Community Services

   Develop innovative outreach strategies and/or collaborate with other
    community agencies to ensure clients are aware of the full scope of services
    available to them, regardless of their point-of-entry into the system.

   Demonstrate measurable success in increasing household income,
    stabilizing housing tenure, assisting with employment and/or improving the
    health, physical, psychological and material well-being of the household.

   Include a component which enhances community building or improves
    access to information.

Housing Development

   Collaborate with local social service providers to leverage housing resources
    for households in need.         Because housing provision for vulnerable
    populations, such as seniors, people with disabilities and homeless people,
    require social service supports, housing providers who propose innovative
    strategies for providing clients with social services through local agencies
    will be prioritized.

   Increase the number of affordable units in Santa Monica through a range of
    strategies, including new construction, acquisition and rehabilitation, and
    housing subsidies – both tenant and project based. Affordable housing
    units can also be concentrated within individual projects or scattered
    throughout the community. Housing providers which employ best practices
    and innovative approaches involving a range of strategies will be given
    funding priority.

Building Partnerships
The City collaborates with public and private organizations to improve the
quality of life for Santa Monica residents and partners with community, public
and private agencies to strengthen and build on community resources as well
as to address community needs.

Because increasing coordination and communication is integral to the success
of programs, agencies are encouraged to explore new partnerships and
networking opportunities with other health and human service providers,
schools, the faith community, law enforcement, neighborhood groups,
businesses, residents, LA County departments and other sectors of the
community.

Non-profit organizations providing youth and teen services, family support,
legal assistance, senior services, and other priority community services may
consider providing some City-funded services through co-locating at
appropriate venues such as Virginia Avenue Park, Police Activities League,
Senior Center, and Ken Edwards Center to ensure maximum targeting of grant
funds to low-income residents.     City staff will work closely with community
organizations, ensuring services are coordinated with other programming and
facility space meets their needs.

                                Appendix I
      Transition of Existing Projects to the CD Grant Program

The City of Santa Monica has prioritized three existing programs where the
administration, operation or coordination may be strengthened through
granting the program to a community-based non-profit agency. Towards that
end, the City is considering transition of the following existing projects to the
CD Program in FY 2007-08:

   Senior Programs: Congregate Meals
   Santa Monica Homeless Community Court: Supportive Services
   Chronic Homeless Program: Assertive Case Management Team

Agencies wishing to apply for these programs should complete the “Operating
Grants Application” on page 13 bearing in mind any special instructions
provided for each project in this Appendix. Special funding consideration will
be given to programs that can demonstrate effective collaboration and service
integration.


Senior Programs: Congregate Meals

About the Program: Congregate Meals are currently provided by the City,
supported with grant funds provided by the Los Angeles County Area Agency
on Aging (AAA). Applicants interested in taking on this component of current
City-operated Senior Programs must submit a proposal to the Los Angeles
County AAA (anticipated May 2007 deadline) and receive County funds in order
to operate this program. Proposals must demonstrate compliance with the Los
Angeles County’s Area Agency on Aging Title III C-1 regulations.

Congregate Meals include nutrition services that are intended to maintain or
improve the physical and social well-being of mobile older adults in a group
setting at strategically located sites to persons sixty (60) years of age or older.
The Meals Program collaborates and develops linkages with other community-
based long-term care service providers, health care programs and local/regional
planning efforts in order to provide the targeted population with the full range
of services available to them.

Target population: Seniors who are in the greatest economic and social need
of services such as those with income levels below the poverty line, those with
physical and mental disabilities, those with language barriers, or those
experiencing cultural or geographical isolation. Priority groups include low

income seniors; ethnic/racial minority groups; and/or those at risk for requiring
a more restrictive living environment.

Services: Currently, meals are prepared by a local caterer in accordance with a
third-party contract. The contract delineates the standards by which meals are
planned prepared and delivered, including approval of menu plans and menus
by a third party registered dietician and LA County AAA registered dietician.

Budget: Please provide a 12-month budget. Currently, the City receives a grant
of approximately $101,000 from the Los Angeles County AAA. In addition, the
City provides approximately $50,000 in direct staffing costs to support the
program. The County requires at least a 15% cash match to the program. The
selected agency will have access to City facilities such as the Senior Center, Ken
Edwards Center, Reed Park and Virginia Avenue Park. Please describe plans to
use those City facilities. Describe efforts that will be made to recruit and retain
existing staff.


Santa Monica Homeless Community Court: Supportive Services

About the Program: The Santa Monica Homeless Community Court is a pilot
partnership between the Los Angeles County Court and the City of Santa Monica
funded by a grant from the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to provide
a mechanism for collaboration between the criminal justice system and the
local homeless continuum of care in order to offer chronically homeless
persons a resolution of their court case(s) in exchange for participation in
services and housing designed to end their homelessness.

Initially, the Santa Monica Homeless Community Court will operate one half-day
per month in the City of Santa Monica’s City Hall Council Chambers. It is
anticipated that fifteen to twenty individuals per month and at least 120
unduplicated persons per year will use the court in the first pilot year. A City of
Santa Monica, Human Services Division employee will serve as the primary
liaison between courtroom staff (judge, prosecutor, public defender, clerk) and
service providers.

The Homeless Community Court will add new program resources to the current
homeless delivery system which will build capacity in the areas of:
   Rapid access to psychiatric and mental health services
   Greater access to substance abuse treatment
   Emergency shelter beds
   Transportation

Persons who are successful participants in the Santa Monica Homeless
Community Court will have access to Santa Monica Housing Authority (SMHA)
vouchers if they are eligible, subject to availability.

Target Population: Santa Monica Homeless Community Court participants will
be chronically homeless individuals cited with “presence” crimes in the City of
Santa Monica. Persons with serious criminal convictions, including felons, are
currently not eligible for the program. Persons may be referred to the Court
from the Santa Monica Jail; from the Los Angeles Superior Court West District
Airport Courthouse (LAX Court) if the arrest was made by the Santa Monica
Police Department; and by local homeless service providers.

Services: Project participants will have access to a range of stabilization
services and SMHA vouchers, thus increasing the individual’s likelihood of
establishing and maintaining life off the street and reducing participants’
interaction with law enforcement and the criminal justice system. Services may
be provided by a single service provider, via a formal collaboration of a group
of service providers, by a lead agency with the help of others, or through
another creative structure, as long as the services are based in a problem-
solving, multi-disciplinary approach.

The grant application should provide a detailed description of how services and
supports will be provided and by whom, including services specified below.

      Special targeted outreach initiatives (e.g., in collaboration with the Santa
       Monica Police Department’s HLP team, other community–based outreach
       teams, or at high-impact areas in Santa Monica);
      Coordination with the Court;
      Assessment, intensive case management, mental health, substance abuse
       and benefit assistance services;
      Emergency shelter and other temporary housing;
      Transportation;
      Housing search, applications and placement;
      Collaboration with service partners;
      Clinical supervision of all team members;
      Other services or supports that establish and maintain life off of the
       streets and reduce interactions with the criminal justice system.

Budget: Please provide a 12-month budget for FY 2007-2008 including any
start-up costs. The City of Santa Monica will enter into a one-year grant
agreement (anticipated March 2007 – February 2008) with the County of Los
Angeles for $458,000 to fund services in support of the Santa Monica Homeless
Community Court. It is anticipated that a portion of the $458,000 grant from
the County of Los Angeles may be used to support services delivered between

March and June 2007. Therefore, the FY 2007-2008 budget for services in
support of the Court may be for less than the full $458,000 grant from the
County of Los Angeles.

Outcomes: The following outcomes currently appear in the draft proposed
Agreement between the City of Santa Monica and County of Los Angeles
(currently under negotiation.) Please consider these in applying for this funding
and provide rationale for any proposed amendments or additions to the
outcomes listed below:

      15-20 individuals will appear before the Court each month;
      50% (60) of the 120 unduplicated Court participants will engage in case
       management for at least three months after their first appearance at the
       Court;
      50% (60) of the 120 unduplicated Court participants will have a citation or
       warrant dismissed during the term of their participation in the Court;
      90 (75%) participants will receive an emergency shelter bed during the
       12-month program period;
      40% (36) of the 90 participants who receive an emergency bed will remain
       in an emergency, therapeutic or transitional bed two weeks or longer;
      50% (60) participants will access psychiatric and/or mental health services
       through the court within the 12-month program period;
      20% (12) of the 60 participants who access psychiatric and/or mental
       health services through the court will transfer their access point for
       mental health services to a DMH facility within the 12-month program
       period;
      12% (15) participants will enter residential treatment for substance abuse
       within the 12-month program period;
      50% (8) of the 15 participants who enter residential treatment for
       substance abuse services will complete a stay of 90 days or longer;
      25% (30) of the 120 unduplicated participants in the court will be placed
       in permanent housing within the 12- month program period;
      80% (24) of the 30 people who are permanently housed will continue to
       be housed after 4 months, or will still be housed at the end of the
       program period (which may be less then 4 months after housing
       placement);
      At the end of the 12-month program period, there will be an aggregate
       reduction of 50% in the number of arrests for all Court participants that
       have been placed in an emergency, therapeutic, transitional or permanent
       bed for 90-days or longer.

Chronic Homeless Program: Assertive Case Management Team

About the Program: The Chronic Homeless Program (CHP) Assertive Case
Management Team is currently operated by the City of Santa Monica with
Community Partners acting as fiscal receiver. The Team is intended to serve as
an additional resource to the CHP by providing intensive case management and
pre-/post-housing placement services to approximately 30 CHP participants.
The purpose of this call for projects is to transfer responsibility for the CHP
Assertive Case Management Team to a local partner agency.

The concept currently calls for an interdisciplinary team, comprised of three
individuals with specific and different areas of expertise (mental health,
substance abuse/life skills, and housing placement assistance). Clinical
supervision of all team members is also a component of the program. The
team’s work is guided by the City’s collaborative of homeless service agencies
currently supervised by a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) working under
contact with the City.

The Team will be expected to be available to provide evening and weekend
outreach, and members of the team will be expected to be on-call 24 hours per
day, 7 days a week on a rotating basis. An emphasis on rapid housing
placement or efforts to integrate a “housing-first” philosophy will be prioritized.

Target Population: Clients must be: 1) chronically homeless high utilizers of
resources/services in Santa Monica; or 2) chronically homeless individuals in
Santa Monica who have been identified by social service agency personnel,
representatives of the business community, residents, and/or City staff. The
focus of the project is on those persons who have been homeless in Santa
Monica for five years or more (with exceptions considered and approved by the
City’s lead LCSW.) This team will also focus on participants who are eligible for
the HUD-funded Serial Inebriate Program (SIP). In order to be eligible for SIP,
individuals must meet the Federal definition for chronic homelessness, and in
addition, must have been living on the streets for at least 365 days over the last
5 years and have a long term addiction to alcohol. In addition, clients must be
living on the streets at the time of initial contact and will have no history of
living in transitional or permanent housing over the last five years.

Services: Project participants will have access to a range of stabilization
services and housing resources, thus increasing the individual’s likelihood of
establishing and maintaining life off of the streets of Santa Monica. Services
may be provided by a single service provider, via a formal collaboration of a
group of service providers, by a lead agency with the help of others, or through
another creative structure, as long as the services are based in a problem-
solving, multi-disciplinary approach. Services and collaborative arrangements

should be consistent       with   “fair    share”   and   regional   approaches   to
homelessness.

The grant application should provide a detailed description of how services and
supports will be provided and by whom, including those services specified
below.

      Special targeted outreach initiatives (e.g., in collaboration with the Santa
       Monica Police Department’s HLP team, other community-based outreach
       teams, the Homeless Community Court, or at high-impact areas in the
       community)
      Assessment and intensive case management with specialized services
       including mental health, substance abuse, life skills and services for
       older, chronically homeless adults (55 years and older).
      Emergency shelter, and other temporary housing;
      Transportation;
      Housing search, applications and placement;
      Independent living skills, housing retention and eviction prevention;
      Collaboration with service partners;
      Clinical supervision of all team members;

Budget: Please provide a 12-month budget. However, please be aware that the
grant may begin part or mid-way into FY 2007-08.

Outcomes: Applicants may propose outcomes which would be relevant to this
target population and service model. Further, the Agreement between the City
of Santa Monica and federal Department of Housing and Urban Development for
the Serial Inebriate Program (SIP) sets forth required outcomes for that subset
of CHP clients. Funded organizations would need to provide outcome data
consistent with that Agreement for SIP clients. More specific information
regarding reporting requirements including outcomes from the HUD SIP
Agreement is available upon request.
