Authority News & Updates

This Addendum is intended to clarify the Authority’s goal with regard to Solicitation #23-440-RFP 0004.

With the intention of distributing 200 PBVs between as many properties within specified zip codes as possible, the Authority has opted not to award more than 25% of the total units in a property. If 25% of total units would result in an award of less than four (4) units, the property will not be qualified for this particular solicitation. As stated in Addendum #2, applicants requesting an award for less than four (4) units may be better served by seeking referrals of tenant-based voucher holders to fill any unit vacancies within their properties.

Adding additional units to properties with existing HAP contracts is also not the focus of this solicitation.
