Isolation and Quarantine RFA Open to the Public

The Walla Walla County Department of Community Health seeks proposals from qualified organizations to provide isolation and quarantine housing facilities to isolate and quarantine unsheltered individuals with communicable illnesses. There is $65,000 available for one or more awards. The facility may be a standalone building or a room or rooms within another structure. 

Applications must ensure equal access regardless of race, national origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, age, veteran or military status, disability, religion, or the use of an assistance animal. Applicants must ensure low barrier access. Rules and policies must be narrowly focused on maintaining a safe environment. Applicants should list any barriers to service for clients and percent of capacity within the center that is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Applications will be accepted until 4:00 p.m. on Friday, June 28, 2024. All applications will be submitted electronically via email to contractsdch@co.walla-walla.wa.us. A confirmation email will be sent for each application received by the deadline.

This Request for Applications does not commit Walla Walla County to award a service agreement. The County reserves the right to accept or reject all or any part of any application and award any service agreement(s) to best serve the interest of the County.

All inquiries and questions concerning this RFA shall be directed in writing to Mindy Pomerinke at contractsdch@co.walla-walla.wa.us. A Q&A document will be posted on the Department of Community Health RFA webpage by close of business on June 10, 2024, and updated on June 17, 2024, if more questions are submitted.
