Note: This RFP has been updated from an earlier version to reflect a new submission deadline and a more complete description of desired experience.


Communities of Opportunity is seeking a consultant to facilitate the co-design process to develop a Systems and Policy Agenda with community organizations. Communities of Opportunity is an initiative launched by Seattle Foundation and King County to create equitable community connection, economic opportunity, health and housing outcomes in King County regardless of place or race.

The agenda will be informed by the current cohort of 27 grantees and will create a set of systems and policy change priorities to rapidly close today’s racial and geographic gaps in four result areas: community connection, economic opportunity, health and housing. The consultant will work with the 50+ organizations recently awarded 27 Community of Opportunity grants from Seattle Foundation and King County.

The most competitive candidates will be an individual/agency/organization with demonstrated experience that includes:

  • History of work in community and demonstrated racial equity analysis.
  • Ability to facilitate large group process, build relationships and drive towards consensus.
  • Knowledge of Seattle, King County and Washington State policy and systems landscape and environment.
  • Ability to synthesize experience and input from the sources above to produce written policy and systems change priorities reports.

Organizations led by people of color and women are encouraged to apply. The deadline to submit qualifications is May 31.

Interested parties should view the full RFP, with project scope of work and timeline, then fill out the application form.
