Boys & Girls Club Needs Assessment

Request for Proposal

The Pagosa Springs Community Development Corporation created a local Collaborative Management Program (CMP) to assess the need for affordable afterschool youth services. These needs are based primarily on local socio-economic conditions. From this assessment, the CMP has elected to apply for and establish a Boys & Girls Club in Pagosa Springs to serve the youth of Archuleta County.

The Boys & Girls Club application process requires a formal Community Youth Situational Study & Needs Assessment conducted by a legal business entity or contractor to achieve this requirement. The PSCDC is currently accepting bids for this Boys & Girls Club Needs Assessment Request for Proposal until June 21, 2022.

The RFP is available through Bidnet and our website.

If you need help registering on Bidnet, please call the Vendor Support Team M-F from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM ET at (800) 835-4603 or support@bidnet.com.

Currently, Pagosa Springs is designated as a Main Street Affiliate, which means we are connected to the Main Street Colorado network and receive limited services and support from the state. We are undergoing a formal application process to become an Official Main Street community so we can receive the full range of available technical assistance, training, consulting services, mini-grants, and scholarships.
