Ongoing Request for Proposals (RFP)

The Oklahoma State Department of Health and the Office of Juvenile Affairs (OJA) have committed to a partnership to bring in a nationally leading treatment to address adolescent substance abuse and the underlying behavioral health conditions that lead teens to misuse substances.  Under the agreement, OJA will build the infrastructure and provide an innovative, evidence-based intervention called Functional Family Therapy (FFT), to Oklahomans.

OJA is excited to announce a continuously open Request for Proposals (RFP) for this project. This opportunity allows agencies to apply when they learn of this prospect and/or determine their agency is able to fulfill the requirements of the initiative. OJA’s goal is to ensure all 77 counties in the state have access to FFT.

Please review the RFP in full.

A complete application entails:

  • Responses to the Proposal Outline (page 6 of the RFP)
  • Complete Attachment A – This document contains an example to assist with completion by the applying agency to plan financially for this project. Further details are on page 5 of the RFP.
  • Complete Attachment B – FFT Application for Site Training and Site Certification.
  • Provide an agency organizational chart with Identification of where the FFT program fits. 

OJA’s review team will pull submissions on the 15th of every month and provide their scores three weeks later. The applying agency will need to coordinate with FFT LLC for a readiness meeting within that three week period. OJA will assist with facilitating the meeting with FFT LLC and the applying agency. These review steps are subject to change should the number of application exceed expectations. Should the timeframes change, OJA will notify the applying site. 

What is Functional Family Therapy (FFT)

Evidence-based programs have been shown to successfully treat delinquent youth in the community & decrease out of home placement costs between $1,300 and $5,000 per family per year, while incarcerating just one youth will cost over $50,000 per year with the likelihood of poorer outcomes for both the youth & their family.

Training and Certification

Functional Family Therapy (FFT) is committed to the highest standards of training, consultation, and service. FFT trains and certifies groups of three to eight therapists in a wide variety of settings. We ask potential FFT providers/sites to begin by reviewing the materials on this page and contacting us to complete the application for site certification.
