The Housing Trust Fund Corporation (HTFC), one of the seven agencies under New York State Homes and Community Renewal (HCR), administers over 44,000 Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers on behalf of very low and extremely low income families in New York. We are the only Section 8 program with authority to operate statewide in New York. HTFC delivers vouchers services through a network of county-based vendors known as Local Administrators (LAs). State and federal rules require that we procure these services on a periodic basis. As such, we are planning to issue a draft Request for Proposals (RFP) in the near future. The draft RFP will provide potential bidders with the opportunity to comment on Scope of Work and solicitation requirements prior to these documents being finalized. It is anticipated that the comment period will last approximately 45 days. HTFC will then issue an open and competitive RFP sometime in 2020 and seek bids from local government, nonprofit and private entities to serve as LAs under multi-year contracts. The timing of the RFP and the terms of the contract are subject to change at HTFC’s discretion.
HCR staff will not be permitted to respond to inquiries regarding the Draft RFP or any future solicitation. All comments and suggestions should be directed to [email protected].
However, staff will continue to support and engage our current network of LAs on all other matters related to Section 8. We will work together with our partners to continue delivering vital housing assistance to families across New York, while maintaining a fair and transparent competitive environment.
