Request for Proposals for an Evaluation of the Center for Trauma Innovation

Posted in: News, Past Opportunities

Posted on December 14, 2020

The New York County District Attorney’s Office (DANY) is requesting proposals for an evaluator of the Center for Trauma Innovation (CTI).

Exodus Transitional Community, Inc is currently in its planning phase and expects to begin implementation of the CTI in spring 2021. The CTI will provide healing and trauma services; offer technical assistance (TTA) to city agencies, community-based organizations, and community members; and establish a Learning Community to share findings from, and inform the work of, the CTI.

This solicitation seeks proposals for an integrated and ongoing evaluation of CTI activities, including a process evaluation and outcome evaluation of selected Direct Care and TTA activities. Given that the CTI will constantly evolve to meet the needs of its focus populations and community, the evaluator must be flexible in its approach and work closely with CTI leadership and staff. The evaluator will provide regular information and iterative feedback on challenges and successes, while also disseminating findings through the CTI’s TTA and Learning Community components. The funded applicant will be required to submit regular deliverables throughout the duration of the term of any contract awarded via this RFP. Deliverables will include regular evaluation updates, a more formal report, and regular research products to convey emerging findings from the evaluation of Direct Care and TTA components.

This solicitation reflects DANY’s broad commitment to data-driven decision-making and to informing the research and practice field in New York and more widely.

DANY anticipates awarding up to one contract, with total funding up to $600,000 over a contract period up to 3.25 years, for evaluation of the CTI.



  • The deadline to submit questions about this RFP and/or the CTI was Wednesday, January 13, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. EST. 
  • The deadline to submit proposals is Friday, February 19, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. EST. Proposals should be submitted to
