Friday, June 14, 2024

The Area Agency on Aging of Tarrant County (AAATC) announces the opening of its Request for Applications (RFA) process for the direct purchase of services for Fiscal Year 2025 (Oct.1, 2024 – Sept. 30, 2025). 

AAATC requests applications from organizations that provide services on a direct purchase of service basis to qualified participants eligible to receive services under Title III of the Older Americans Act of 1965. 

Applications must be submitted by Monday, July 1, 2024. 

The Area Agency on Aging Direct Purchase of Services program promotes the development of a comprehensive and coordinated service delivery system to meet the needs of older individuals (ages 60 or older) and their caregivers. Direct purchase of service is a contracting methodology for the purchase of services on a client-by-client basis in lieu of annualized contracting, or a fixed sum basis. It is a procurement methodology, which provides flexibility in the purchasing of services for participants in federal Title III Programs.


Organizations eligible to apply include private non-profits, private for-profits, and local city-county governmental entities capable of meeting service delivery requirements under direct purchase of service procedures. Debarred or suspended parties are ineligible. Proof of liability insurance amounting to $1 million is required.
