The RFP process for this program opens once every two years in line with the state's budgeting biennium and fiscal year (beginning July 1st), unless otherwise directed by the legislature. Providers compete for funds during the RFP process. Outreach to target populations and recruitment of individuals is up to the providers who successfully win grants; RFPs are scored in part by the applicants' outreach strategies.
