Update: 21 April 2020. The current worldwide pandemic has caused unprecedented disruption to daily life. Although we had previously extended the RFP process to April 30th, the escalation of the pandemic’s detrimental effect to our communities has forced us to reevaluate that decision.
At this time, Florida Community Loan Fund (FCLF) is suspending the RFP process so that our resources can be focused on protecting the community development ecosystem in the state of Florida and ensuring that our borrowers continue to provide essential services to the low-income clients they serve.
We look forward to the return of a more comfortable routine for business. At that time, the relaunch of the RFP program will be announced on the FCLF website.
Florida Community Loan Fund (FCLF) is pleased to announce the release of a Request for Proposals (RFP) for Banking Services. This RFP was made available February 11, 2020, with a deadline for submissions of 5:00PM EDT, Thursday, April 30, 2020.
Questions concerning this RFP must be submitted in writing by 5:00PM EST, Friday, March 6, 2020. Answers to questions will be sent to potential vendors who have requested to be included in this distribution and have supplied their contact information.
