Request for Proposal 

The City of Buffalo (“City”), through the Buffalo Urban Renewal Agency (“BURA”), seeks a professional, qualified organization to manage and provide program delivery services for the City of Buffalo Housing Rehabilitation Loan Program.

One of the several activities to be undertaken as part of the Program is an owner-occupied housing rehabilitation program for low and moderate income homeowners. The goal of the program is to rehabilitate one-to four family owner-occupied residences within designated target areas to ensure compliance with local housing codes and federal lead based paint remediation standards; to provide for the repair of emergency conditions as allowed under City of Buffalo Program guidelines; and to provide assistance to owner-occupants through other programs as may be developed by the City of Buffalo Office of Strategic Planning. The Scope of Work incorporates the processing of new applications to be submitted by local community based organizations as allowed by the BURA following execution of a contract for this RFP as well as completion of actions to close out applications already in process.

Applicants must be incorporated for-profit or non-profit entities to undertake affordable housing activities within the boundaries of the City of Buffalo.

It is the policy of BURA, that all local Minority/Women Business Enterprises (M/WBE’s) be encouraged to submit proposals. BURA continues to ensure that all locally owned M/WBE’s are afforded the maximum opportunity to participate as Applicants or Sub-Applicants in the provision of goods and services for BURA. BURA encourages the award of at least thirty percent (30%) of the total dollar value of this project directly or indirectly to M/WBE’s.
