On December 13, 2018, TDCJ put out their once every 10 years RFP for comprehensive substance abuse treatment services. This is a big opportunity to bring some capacity and resources into Austin.  They are looking for residential and outpatient treatment providers. This is basically and 8-10 year contract with TDCJ and they will keep your facility full.  This application is due 1/25/2019. This is the link for the RFP.  http://www.txsmartbuy.com/sp/696-PF-19-P002

 

If your organization, or you know of any organizations that serves TDCJ involved persons, please let them know about this funding opportunity.

 

As a side note:  If you are wanting/considering applying for residential contract, you are required to have a public hearing and you have to post your public hearing 30 days before the hearing in 3 local newspapers.  So I would have that hearing around 1/20 and get it in the newspaper early next week.
