LA DOOR Interim Housing Partner Request for Proposals (RFP)

The Los Angeles City Attorney's Office, through its Recidivism Reduction & Drug Diversion Unit (R2D2), is issuing this Request for Proposals (RFP) to fund interim shelter housing for male and female individuals aged 18 and over who are participants in the City Attorney's LA DOOR (Diversion Outreach & Opportunities for Recovery) program.

LA DOOR is a health-focused, comprehensive drug intervention approach that emphasizes field-based services, pre-booking diversion, community engagement, and financial leveraging to address substance dependence within the South LA community while limiting the number of misdemeanor drug cases processed through the traditional criminal justice system.

Proposals are due February 14th at 3:00 PM (PST). There is a mandatory bidders conference on January 25th at 2:00 PM (PST).
