Release to Media:
The Housing Authority of the City of Bloomington (BHA) invites property owners in Monroe County to submit a written proposal demonstrating their project eligibility, qualifications and interest in securing Project Based Vouchers that will serve eligible individuals or families. Project Based Voucher (PBV) assistance provides rental subsidies paid on behalf of eligible families who live in units that are contracted under the program. In this Request for Proposals (RFP), the Housing Authority of the City of Bloomington (BHA) seeks proposals from owners/developers who will commit up to 25 units of their rental housing to receive assistance through project based vouchers.
The Housing Authority will offer owners of selected quality housing an allocation of vouchers directed to the target population(s) that can be attached to designated units of their rental housing. Owners will gain the benefit of a multi-year contract (up to twenty years with the option to renew) with BHA ensuring a Housing Choice Voucher Program-approved rent for their properties for an extended period. Eligible individuals and families from BHA’s waiting list who are extremely low income (households at 30% Area Median Income or below) and very low-income (households at 50% Area Median Income or below) will gain the benefit of quality affordable housing.
Interested applicants may obtain an application form along with RFP instructions online at http://bhaindiana.net/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/200731_RFP.pdf .
