RFPs for Supportive Housing: Deadline March 3, 2017

New Hampshire Housing has posted two new Requests for Proposals for supportive housing. These RFPs stem from allocations to the NH Affordable Housing Fund and the National Housing Trust Fund.

RFPs Offered:

1) Supportive Housing For Persons with Substance Use Disorders (source: NH Affordable Housing Fund). The purpose of this RFP is to commit the remaining $700,000 from the 2016 allocation to the NH Affordable Housing Fund, to be used for the creation of affordable supportive recovery housing.

Full details and RFP linked here.

2) Supportive Housing for Persons with Special Needs (source: National Housing Trust Fund). This RFP makes available up to $2 million for projects that serve those earning less than 30% of the Area Median Income with housing that incorporates services for residents.  There will be a preference for projects serving the Chronically Homeless, as defined by HUD. This RFP will also be used to award Project Based Vouchers (PBVs) to allow funded projects to serve an extremely low income population for the duration of the 30-year minimum affordability period.
