Alachua County Commission Seeks Proposals for CHOICES Grants

Press release from Alachua County

The Alachua County Commission is seeking proposals from governmental and non-profit agencies (non-profits must have a current IRS 501(c)(3) designation) with a physical address in Alachua County, for delivery of programs to aid in the reduction of health disparities and the lack of access to care. The grants are for agencies providing medical, oral health, and mental/behavioral health services. 

All proposals for the three-year (Fiscal Years 2023 thru 2025) Community Health Offering Innovative Care and Educational Services (CHOICES) grants must be completed electronically via ZoomGrants beginning at noon on May 10, 2022, and submitted no later than 4:59 p.m. on May 31, 2022. 

Interested parties may access the ZoomGrants site by visiting the CHOICES Grant Funding website.
No late proposals will be accepted. Proposals that do not meet the grant criteria will be rejected. Application rules and instructions, including the complete Request for Applications (RFA) document, are available on the site, and interested vendors are encouraged to read all related documents prior to beginning the application.

The CHOICES grant is a reimbursement grant, requiring grantees to expend their own funds and request reimbursement. The grant period is from October 1, 2022, through September 30, 2025, subject to annual appropriation by the Alachua County Commission. 

We will hold an optional CHOICES Vendor Information Session on Tuesday, May 17, at 10 a.m. at the Alachua County Health Department, Conference Room A (224 S.E. 24th St, Gainesville). This session is also available remotely using Zoom. Meeting ID: 836 4902 3634 – Passcode: 741881
