HPD, NYCHP Issue A Request For Qualifications for Private Development
New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) Commissioner Richard T. Roberts today issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for two housing development programs administered in conjunction with the non-profit New York City Housing Partnership (NYCHP). The RFQ seeks builders and developers to create owner-occupied housing throughout New York City as part of the New Homes Program and the Neighborhood Builder Program.
As part of both programs, HPD makes land available and may provide subsidies to assist builders and developers in the construction of quality for-sale housing. The NYCHP assists with site feasibility analysis, processing of public approvals, financial packaging and marketing of homes. In addition, the Housing Partnership offers special financial and technical assistance to enable builders and developers participating in the Neighborhood Builder Program to secure the resources to successfully complete a housing project.
Interested parties can obtain a copy of the RFQ at the offices of HPD or the Housing Partnership at the addresses listed below between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, beginning Tuesday, May 30. A $25 non-refundable fee will be assessed for each RFQ. The fee must be paid in the form of a certified check, cashier's check or money order payable to the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development.NYC Department of Housing The NYC Housing Partnership
