Requests for Proposals (RFPs)

Lanterman Regional Center’s Community Services unit issues a Request for Proposals (RFP) when there is a need to develop specific homes, programs or specialized services for clients. Current RFPs can be downloaded from this page. RFPs may or may not have start-up funds available.

Please read the Using Request for Proposals to Address Client Service Needs policy first, as this process is used by Lanterman Regional Center to obtain formal offers from competing providers and evaluating those proposals against stated requirements, using predetermined evaluation criteria, weights and cost.
