City Accepting Proposals for Housing Rehabilitation-Related Services
Posted Date: 9/11/2017 12:15 PM
Other City housing programs are available for homebuyers, homeowners and rental property owners. Know of someone in need of housing repairs or other housing assistance? Please contact the Neighborhood Development Department at 336-373-2349. 
The City’s Neighborhood Development Department is now accepting proposals for the following housing rehabilitation-related services for three-year contracts beginning in October:

Environmental Testing
– To provide asbestos, air quality, radon and lead inspections, risk assessments, and clearance testing for about 65-85 homes (built prior to 1978) per year.

Healthy Homes Training – To provide training during the next three years for a minimum of 20 people in Healthy Homes courses.

Lead Abatement and RRP Training – To provide training during the next three years for a minimum of 20 people in lead specific courses.

After-Rehab Appraisals – To provide after rehab appraisal services for between five to 12 homes per year.

Learn more about the contracts, eligibility, and submission requirements by reading this Request for Proposals (RFP) document. Deadline for submissions is 5 pm Monday, September 25.

The contracts are made possible from a $2.9 million grant the City received this summer from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development to combat lead and other home hazards. The City anticipates remediating hazards in 165 housing units over the next three years, making those homes lead safe, with a particular emphasis on serving low income households with young children.

Questions about the RFPs? Call Jennifer Freeman, housing rehabilitation manager, at 336-373-2530, or Cynthia Blue, housing services manager, at 336-433-7376.
