Request for Proposals
The Rural Alaska Community Action Program (RurAL CAP) is soliciting proposals for the design and implementation of an external evaluation of the Resilient Alaska Youth (RAY) Program, an AmeriCorps State and National (ACSN) program dedicated to fostering youth resilience in rural Alaska. As an ACSN grantee, the RAY program is required by the program’s funder, AmeriCorps, to conduct an impact evaluation by an external evaluator.
This RFP describes the design for an external impact evaluation of the RAY program to assess the effect of the program’s youth services. The timeframe for the project is 24 months, starting December 2021, and will be funded incrementally.
Through RurAL CAP, the Division of Juvenile Justice, DHSS, is awarding grants up to $6,000-$8,000 to develop and implement projects that empower youth to make positive life choices. These are reimbursable grants only.
