Diverting to Care Grantee and Stakeholder Convening (Request for Contracted Service Proposals)

Diverting to Care Grantee and Stakeholder Convening (Request for Contracted Service Proposals)

Missouri Foundation for Health (MFH) is requesting proposals from qualified contractors to plan, coordinate, and help execute a Diverting to Care convening for a group of behavioral health, public health, and criminal legal system stakeholders interested in building knowledge and skill to divert individuals with mental health or substance use disorders from interaction with the criminal justice system. This group of stakeholders includes MFH grantees as part of our 2022 Diverting to Care Community-Based Grantee cohort as well as other community and state-level leaders working on this topic.


The selected contractor will play a critical role in co-designing with MFH staff, grantees, and stakeholders at large a convening to ensure stakeholders build their knowledge of diversion efforts happening in our state and nationally. Stakeholders should have ample opportunity to build their relationships with others doing this work in Missouri. For current grantees, the convening should provide an opportunity to reflect on their efforts thus far and highlight promising work, being explicit about the implications for strengthening existing efforts. We anticipate hosting this convening in person in either St. Louis or Columbia, Missouri and will require the contractor to travel for the event.
