Urgent Call to Action by Executive Director Mike Mahoney: Local Non-Profit Businesses are at risk of losing the state contract to an Out-of-State for Profit Company to provide services to children with disabilities and their families.
Montana values local in-state businesses; current non-profit businesses, Family Outreach, ECI, and STEP have provided quality services to residents of Montana for 40 years. For profit, Benchmark, have offered to provide these services at a drastically lower rate. DPHHS is in the process of considering their proposal for providing services in 2 geographical regions of the State (Region 3 & 4).
This contract will be awarded by May 31, 2017.
