Home Repair Program - Request for Proposals

Request for Proposals (RFP)


The Home Repair Program RFP is seeking administrators to provide a variety of home improvements that may include roof or porch repair/replacement, remediation of environmental health hazards, and climate resilient adaptations such as flood control, air conditioning, energy efficiency boiler and furnaces, insulation, solar energy and decarbonization. The service provider’s role is twofold: 1) to perform application administration and 2) construction management oversight of construction contractors. An amendment to the original proposal allows general contractors to now apply to provide construction management services.
