Improve Partnerships Through OneStarís Request for Proposals
The deadline for the first of two requests for proposals (RFPs) through the Renewing Our Communities Account (ROCA) at OneStar Foundation: Texas Center for Social Impact is Friday, February 19, 2010, at 11:59 p.m. CST. Don’t miss this opportunity to be a part of such a groundbreaking new initiative!
Funded through House Bill 492, the ROCA RFPs are intended to encourage partnerships, reduce barriers and foster better communication among faith-based and community organizations (FBCOs), local governments and partners in the nonprofit sector.
The RFP and information such as eligibility and selection criteria can be found on the OneStar ROCA Web page. Applications must be submitted through this Web page as well.
An additional RFP focusing on local governments and FBCOs will be posted on our Web site later this spring.
