Neighborhood Allies and the City of Pittsburgh are seeking proposals from community organizations (“Nonprofit Providers”) to implement the Pittsburgh Financial Empowerment Center (FEC). The Financial Empowerment Center model provides free, professional, one-on-one financial counseling and coaching to residents. With support from the Cities for Financial Empowerment (CFE) Fund and local funders, the City of Pittsburgh and Neighborhood Allies will launch a Financial Empowerment Center as a key public service to support financially vulnerable residents.
As part of the Financial Empowerment Center model, Neighborhood Allies and the City of Pittsburgh will contract with a qualified community organization to develop and manage the FEC, including the responsibilities related to the delivery of financial counseling, training and supervising financial counselors, database operations, community partnerships and program deliverables.
Neighborhood Allies and the City of Pittsburgh will consider proposals from organizations with proven experience in the delivery of social services in the community and ability to implement high-volume, quality, one-on-one financial counseling services to residents in Pittsburgh. The nonprofit provider will be expected to develop referral systems with a range of other programs and organizations to drive traffic to the FEC, as well as be responsive to potential strategic partnerships initiated by the City of Pittsburgh and Neighborhood Allies to ensure that goals are being met.
