2014 RFP Introduction

Call for Interest - Non-Profit Organizations

The South East Texas Regional Planning Commission (SETRPC) is calling for interest from Non-Profit Organizations that desire to participate in the Homeowner Opportunity Program (HOP) as part of the Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery Program (CDBG-DR) funded by the Texas General Land Office (GLO) and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

The Homeowner Opportunity Program (HOP) is a Disaster Recovery Housing Program through which income-qualified applicants who live in FEMA-designated “High Risk” areas or areas of high minority and/or poverty concentration (as approved by the GLO) may elect to rehabilitate or reconstruct their existing home or relocate to a higher opportunity area. This program will involve relocation counseling and the provision of licensed real estate professionals to explain the options and choices available. When an applicant chooses to move to a higher opportunity area, their existing property will be transferred at no cost to an SETRPC pre-approved non-profit organization.

Attached is the Call for Interest (CFI) that details program requirements, contact information, and response deadlines.
