Term of Contract:

Rapid Re-Housing assistance for the individuals and/or families can be provided for up to one year. Services funded by this RFP are to commence November 1, 2019 and continue through October 31, 2021.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

An agency that is a unit of state or local government and/or an agency currently incorporated as a nonprofit corporation, duly registered and in good standing with the State of New Mexico Public Regulation Commission, which has not-for-profit status under 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service Code and which has demonstrated capability in providing the services for which it is applying is an eligible responder for award of a contract pursuant to this RFP.
