RFQ for Grant Writing Services
Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission

Created in 1965, the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) is an interstate, intercounty and intercity agency that provides continuing, comprehensive and coordinated planning to shape a vision for the future growth of the Delaware Valley region.  The region includes Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery counties, as well as the City of Philadelphia, in Pennsylvania; and Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Mercer counties in New Jersey.

DVRPC is currently managing a Local Food Economy financial and technical assistance initiative. Several goals of this initiative are: 1) provide or contract for technical assistance serving DVRPC’s Food System Stakeholders; 2) identify opportunities to access non-local funds (i.e. federal grant programs and national foundation funds); and 3) provide opportunities for stakeholders to collaborate within existing projects and on new projects.

DVRPC is seeking the qualifications of several grantwriters to assist in these efforts over the course of 12 to 18 months.  We are seeking seeking individuals with experience in researching and writing government funded and privately funded grants, preferably within the areas of agriculture, community development, direct marketing, distribution, economic development, farmers market development, farmland preservation, food systems, food access, hunger relief, marketing, nutrition education, rural development, small business development, sustainable agriculture, and/or technical assistance.

The full RFQ is available in PDF (http://www.dvrpc.org/data/rfps/GrantwriterRFQ_rev.pdf) and Word (http://www.dvrpc.org/asp/consultant/display.aspx?title=Grant-Writing%20Services).

Submissions are due by email on or before 4:30 pm EST on Friday, 4/2/2010 to Amanda Wagner, Food Systems Associate, Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission, awagner@dvrpc.org.
