Public Works Partners, along with LISC NYC, has announced the establishment of a pool of prequalified independent consultants who can be tapped to provide direct, technical assistance to New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) residents as part of a program called the PACT Resource Team. The Permanent Affordability Commitment Together (PACT) program is a critical tool that, through partnerships with private and non-profit development partners, allows NYCHA to not only modernize homes, but also provide enhanced community services and amenities.
In February 2022, Public Works Partners and LISC NYC issued a PACT Resource Team Request for Qualifications (RFQ) from technical assistance providers to help ensure residents have a voice throughout the PACT investment process. We are excited to announce the initial pool of prequalified technical assistance consultants.
Members of the team will build the capacity of NYCHA resident leaders to facilitate broader resident engagement and will support residents to play a critical role in identifying needs and priorities for investment, selecting PACT Partner teams of developers, general contractors, property managers and social service providers, informing the physical design of developments, planning for new property management, and augmenting social services and economic empowerment resources. More information can be found on LISC NYC’s website here.
Applications from additional interested providers will be accepted on a rolling basis. View the full RFQ here. Applications must be submitted via the online application portal, found here, and will be reviewed on an ongoing basis.
