Request for Proposals


Announcement:  Community LIFT Seeking Requests for Proposal for CDC Industry Report


Community L.I.F.T. Corp. (LIFT) is seeking to update the 2015 State of the CDC (Community Development Corporation) Industry Report.  The last report produced in 2015 established a base of evidence and suggested a new direction and strategic framework for LIFT and other local partners to develop a more unified and effective approach to strengthen CDC capacity throughout the city.  To this end, LIFT is seeking the services of a consultant(s) experienced in community-based development and knowledgeable of the City of Memphis to conduct research on the state of the community development industry and to produce a report.

In the report, we aim to collect evidence that:

a) Shows progress in the CDC industry because of increased investment by LIFT and others;
b) Evaluates investments into CDCs (Has capacity-building resulted in the increase of CDCs or more CDC activity? Have CDCs been able to leverage additional funds using LIFT’s capacity building fund?);
c) Identify specific CDC industry needs and make a stronger case for support to expand CDC investments in those areas; and
d) Evaluates and projects the economic impact of projects either led or shepherded by CDCs.

Responses must be submitted by NOVEMBER 15, 2020 no later than 5:00 pm (Central Time)
