To Expand Affordable Housing Opportunities in the City of DeLand and West Volusia County, Florida
DeLand Housing Authority ("DHA") administers federal housing programs for low-income persons in the West Volusia areas including City of DeLand, Orange City, Debary, Lake Helen, Deltona, Pierson and Glenwood, Volusia County, Florida (the "West Volusia County"). DHA manages low-income public housing units and housing choice vouchers through the Section 8 Program at properties located throughout the West Volusia Area. DHA is looking to diversify and expand affordable housing available in the West Volusia Area. This initiative could include mixed-finance communities, assisted living, rental housing, and/or homeownership development.
In furtherance of this initiative, DHA invites written proposals from qualified persons or entities (each a "Respondent") to be a development partner with DHA in acquiring, developing, revitalizing and/or rehabilitating affordable residential real estate in the West Volusia Area. DHA intends to engage all qualified Respondents to work with DHA to develop the affordable housing needed in the West Volusia Area.
DHA works cooperatively with United States Department of Housing and Urban Development Department ("HUD"). DHA requires that all Co-Developer Services performed be in compliance with all applicable rules, regulations and requirements promulgated by HUD and all other applicable federal regulations including Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity (FHEO) requirements. Additionally, all Co-Developer Services must be performed in compliance with all state and local laws and regulations, including where applicable, those governing the Low Income Housing Tax Credit ("LIHTC") program.
This procurement will be done on a rolling basis. Each Respondent that meets the criteria will be qualified to provide Co-Developer services for one or more developments and DHA will enter into a Master Development Agreement ("MDA") with each selected Co-Developer.
