Request for Information

Feb 8, 2022
To view RFI click here: VASH RFI
Providence Housing Authority (PHA) and the VA Providence Healthcare System are considering conducting a request for proposals for project-based vouchers, specifically for the Housing and Urban Development-Veterans Administration Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) vouchers.
We are requesting information from potentially interested parties about existing, in-process housing construction or rehabilitation projects, or proposed housing developments where there is potential for project basing HUD-VASH vouchers.
Note that many participants in the HUD-VASH program have physical disabilities so PHA and VA are particularly interested in accessible units, including fully ADA Accessible units, ground floor units, and units in multi-floor buildings with elevators.
Housing owners, developers, property managers or service providers may submit responses to this RFI. No award will be made based on responses to this RFI. Responders are encouraged to provide as complete a response as possible (addressing all applicable questions related to existing or proposed projects) to help inform the PHA and VA’s awareness of potential community interest and capacity for serving HUD-VASH clients through PBVs.
At this time the PHA and VA anticipate that a total of no more than 25 VASH PBVs will be available in a potential 2022 RFP but are not committing that this full number will be made available. PHA and VA are unlikely to consider submissions requesting less than 5 PBVs in a given development. A future RFP may be released in 2022 after the PHA and VA review responses to this RFI and determine what number of vouchers can be made available.
Please submit responses via email to Lydia McCoy, PHA Office of Strategy and Development, at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday, March 18th at 3:00pm. Questions on the RFI may be submitted to the same email address.
