Request for Qualifications for Relocation Services

Brookline Housing Authority (BHA)
Request for Qualifications for Relocation Services

The Brookline Housing Authority is seeking proposals from qualified relocation firms to provide relocation services associated with the redevelopment of O’Shea House and Morse Apartments utilizing a 4% LIHTC and tax-exempt bond execution. Both properties, each a 100-unit public housing development, will convert at closing to Section 8 Project-Based Vouchers (PBV) under HUD’s Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) and Section 18 programs. The first transaction, O’Shea, is expected to close in Spring 2019; Morse Apartments is projected to close by the end of 2019. Renovation will begin immediately following closing and is expected to last between twelve and fourteen months. The buildings will be occupied during the renovation, with residents relocated while their units are renovated to units within their building that are currently being held vacant. The construction scope is intended to address all significant repair needs for the long-term and residents’ ability to age in place. The BHA is looking for firms with particular expertise in affordable housing, seniors/disabled housing, occupied rehab, and working with housing authorities.

The RFP will be available on October 1, 2018 on the BHA website at

Each respondent must submit one (1) signed original and two copies of its proposal. The original signed hard copy must be clearly labeled as such.

The proposal must be submitted no later than 4 pm on October 24, 2018. Proposals received after this deadline will not be accepted.
