Spectrum Generations request for proposals

Updated: Jun 27

Spectrum Generations, Central Maine’s Area Agency on Aging, provides community-based services through the Older Americans Act (OAA) Title III, parts B, C, E, and D. Spectrum Generations serves Kennebec, Somerset, Waldo, Knox, Lincoln, Sagadahoc Counties as well as the towns of Brunswick and Harpswell. The mission of Spectrum Generations is to promote and advance the well-being and independence of older and disabled adults, with the support of their care partners, to live in their community of choice.


To best serve local communities, Spectrum Generations seeks proposals to subcontract Older Americans Act services with local providers. Those services include: OAA Title IIIB, Money Minders, Community Center Activities for Older Adults, Telephone Reassurance, Adult Day Services, In-home Supportive Services (chore, personal care, and homemaker), OAA Title IIIC, Home Delivered Meals, Congregate Dining, Nutrition Counseling and Education, OAA Title IIID, Health Promotion and Disease Prevention, OAA Title IIIE, and Care Partner Support Groups and Training.


Single-year grant agreements will cover a period of one fiscal year, beginning October 1 and ending September 30. Providers must be familiar and compliant with rules and policy sections of the Office of Aging and Disability Services, Maine Nutrition Standards, the Administration on Community Living, the Older Americans Act, and standard terms and conditions required by Maine employment law and contracting guidelines.


Providers must also demonstrate the capacity to continue quality services in the case of delayed state payments or reduced award amounts due to state contractual amendments. Federal Funds through the Older Americans Act are often not received until January for contracts starting in October and typically include 2 to 3 amendments during the contract year. Award amounts are based on service type, service area, and units of service. Any services provided by a subcontractor must fall within Spectrum Generations planning and service area listed above, though they need not cover the entire area. Providers must meet all requirements and submit all data prior to receiving payment. Providers may not means test or subcontract services.


Interested organizations must submit a Letter of Intent by June 28, 2024. Submissions will not be accepted after the closing date. Submissions should demonstrate the capacity to meet all requirements herein as well as the regulatory requirements from the sources listed above. Current subcontractors are not required to submit a letter of intent for those services currently under contract.


Email submissions to Nathan Miller at nmiller@spectrumgenerations.org with the subject ‘Letter of Intent.’
