BBAPI Grant Program


RFP Overview

The Binghamton-Broome Anti-Poverty Initiative (BBAPI) is a community-driven effort to break the cycle of poverty in Broome County. By applying the Collective Impact framework to first explore, then address the root causes of poverty, BBAPI focuses on creating systems-level social change to find solutions to the immediate and long-term barriers affecting individuals impacted by poverty.

The Request for Proposals (RFP) is seeking proposals for innovative and sustainable solutions in the areas of Child Care, Housing, and Community Empowerment Centers, that offer comprehensive wrap-around services and supports, and Transportation services for educational and workforce development opportunities, that will allows those living in poverty to achieve their full potential.
