    RFQ 2013-01 Housing Counseling Agencies

    The Florida Housing Finance Corporation invites all qualified Offerors to submit proposals for consideration in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) 2013-01. On January 17, 2013, the Legislative Budget Commission approved a $10 million allocation from National Mortgage Settlement funds to provide foreclosure counseling services to be administered by Florida Housing. The funding will allow Florida Housing to carry out the following objectives:

    Help prevent homeowners from going into foreclosure; and

    Provide at-risk homeowners with good financial management education to help them better manage their money and assist them with credit problems in order to become financially stable.

    Florida Housing proposes to meet these objectives by providing funding on a fee-for-service basis to U.S. HUD approved housing counseling agencies to carry out foreclosure counseling services and more extensive financial management education. The program approach will be to provide counseling support for at risk homeowners that augments counseling provided through the National Foreclosure Mitigation Counseling (NFMC) Program and other programs when available.

    Proposals shall be accepted until 2:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on Tuesday, March 12, 2013, to the attention of Sherry Green, Contracts Administrator, Florida Housing Finance Corporation, 227 North Bronough Street, Suite 5000, Tallahassee, Florida 32301-1329. For questions or additional information, please contact Sherry Green at (850)488-4197 or sherry.green@floridahousing.org.
