The New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) is seeking to identify qualified developers (“Applicants”) to submit applications (“Applications”) to participate in rebuilding 1-4 unit homes in New York City that were destroyed or substantially damaged by Hurricane Sandy, as determined by the City’s Office of Housing Recovery Operations. The City has created the NYC Houses Reconstruction Program (the “Program”) in order to facilitate and fund the rebuilding of homes on Eligible Property. This Request For Qualifications (RFQ) has been issued to identify Applicants who have the expertise and capacity to rebuild homes on Eligible Property in a cost-efficient and timely manner, consistent with the neighborhood context. Funding for this effort will consist of CDBG-DR funds and all projects must meet the eligibility and other requirements of CDGB-DR.
This RFQ has been issued to identify a list of Qualified Developers who meet the Program’s eligibility requirements. Applicants may be individuals and organizations, both not-for-profit and for-profit, who have the experience, financial resources, and capacity required to reconstruct single-family housing at the scale outlined in the RFQ. Responses to this RFQ are merely for the purpose of qualifying developers for the Program and are not applications to receive loans or any assistance from HPD.
Interested parties may download the RFQ and the forms using the links below. The RFQ contains a detailed description of the Program, requirements, guidelines, eligibility requirements, selection process, and submission requirements.
A pre-submission conference will be held at HPD, 100 Gold Street, 1R, New York, NY on May 14, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. Interested organizations are strongly encouraged to attend the conference.
