The Division of Human Services utilizes the CTK Online Data Manager (ODM), a web-based grants management system through which proposals for City of Columbia and/or Boone County social services funding must be submitted.
To submit a proposal under the current RFP:
For questions about accessing and/or using the ODM or to report technical difficulties, please contact the Division of Human Services.
As a service to applicants, the Division of Human Services staff will, upon request, review proposals for completeness prior to submission. Please note that the sole purpose of this review is to assess whether or not the proposal is complete and inclusive of the required documents. A pre-submission review is not a review of the content of the proposal, nor is it an opportunity for technical assistance. Requests of this nature should be made in advance of a pre-submission proposal review request.
Pre-submission proposal review requests must be submitted to the Division of Human Services via e-mail to HumanServices@gocolumbiamo.com no later than 5:00 p.m. on July 23, 2013.
The deadline to submit a proposal for FY2014 funding is July 31, 2013 at 5:00 p.m.
In October, hearings for all applicant organizations are held by the commission.
At its November meeting, the commission holds a public hearing in regard to the commission's preliminary funding recommendations for the upcoming fiscal year.
Please refer to the links below for updated information about funding requests, recommendations, and allocations for the upcoming fiscal year.
