RFP Asset Repositioning (February 27, 2023)

The Selma Housing Authority is soliciting proposals from qualified firms interested in providing Public Housing Asset Repositioning services for the Selma Housing Authority, and/or its for-profit and non-profit subsidiaries, affiliates and related companies, (collectively referred to in this solicitation as “Selma Housing Authority” or “SHA”). The successful proposer will represent SHA’s interest in dealing with HUD, future development partners and other stakeholders as determined necessary. SHA is not selecting a developer partner at this time.

It is SHA’s intention to enter a two phased contract with one or more of the successful proposer(s). Phase 1 will be a fixed price contract for a defined scope of work. Phase 2 will be a task order-controlled contract with defined scope and fee for activities needed in support of implementation. The products deliverable pursuant to Phase 1 will be the basis for defining the range of services SHA will require during Phase 2. Selection and performance under Phase 1 will not obligate SHA to enter a Phase 2 contract. Below are key dates and process information related to this RFP.

To provide additional affordable housing, Selma Housing Authority (SHA, the Authority) is seeking to place project-based vouchers in new or rehabilitated projects, with a preference for those agreeing to serve as off-site replacement units residents of GWC Homes and other SHA public housing sites. Therefore, SHA is accepting proposals from property owners and developers for the Project-Based Housing Choice Voucher (HCV or Section 8) Program. Qualified existing developments or new construction and rehabilitation projects may be awarded 1 to 20-year contracts renewable to a total of 40 years.

Proposals will be accepted by SHA on an on-going basis until all units have been awarded, or the RFP is withdrawn, or at the end of six months. However, available funding is limited, and proposals will be reviewed in the order they are received, and the Authority will provide notice regarding approval of proposals and a conditional reservation of funding within 60 days of proposal submission.

The complete Request for Proposals (RFP), which is available from the Authority, details the goals, eligibility requirements, proposal submission contents and instructions, and reporting requirements for program participation. Proposals will be scored against the detailed criteria, and shall meet a minimum scoring threshold to be approved.
Qualified sites may receive rental subsidy for qualified tenants in up to 25% of the units up to 25 units in a family development (whichever is greater), or up to 100% of the units in a development for seniors, or developments providing permanent supportive housing for special needs populations including the homeless, as laid out in the RFP.
