Pierce County and the Pierce County Community Development Corporation have made roughly $17M available to support the development and preservation of affordable housing for low, very low, and extremely low-income residents. With this historic investment in affordable housing (roughly 4x the normal amount!) we are looking to find eligible applicants to acquire, newly construct and/or rehabilitate affordable rental or homeownership housing. Applications accepted until June 10.
Designing a Unified Regional Approach that will work in Pierce County is a major undertaking. In the next few weeks, the County will release an RFP looking to identify a consultant to lead the community through that process. The Request for Proposal is scheduled to be issued May 20, with submissions due by June 10.
With the growth of the homeless crisis response system and the need to provide culturally appropriate services, many new providers are expanding their services to include programs to serve people experiencing homelessness. To support these organizations – especially those by and for black, indigenous and people of color, the County will soon release a Request for Proposals (RFP) to provide technical support to ensure these agencies have the support they need as they help people reestablish housing. The Request for Proposals should drop in mid-May.
