Through the Regional Housing First Program (“RHFP”), this Request For Proposal (“RFP”) is issued by the Capital Regional District (“CRD”), Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation ("CMHC") and BC Housing Management Commission (“BC Housing”) to non-profit housing societies, the private sector and other community groups interested in creating new affordable rental housing units for low to moderate households, and housing units to address the needs of people experiencing homelessness within the Capital Region. Priority will be given to projects that include a portion of units that rent at provincial Income Assistance Rates and are still viable without additional financial assistance from the CRD or BC Housing. Respondents to this RFP and their employees are expected to have the necessary experience, resources and capacity to undertake such a project. Non-profit housing societies may partner with other organizations to strengthen their proposed project.
This RFP is a rolling call, remaining open until program funds have been consumed. Proponents are free to submit their proposals at any time. Proposals will be reviewed periodically as they are received.
