San José Announces Flood/Neighborhood Resilience Building and Recovery Request for Proposals

The City of San José Housing Department is pleased to announce a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Neighborhood Recovery and Resilience Program. This RFP seeks individual nonprofit agencies or a consortium of agencies that will provide, directly or through partnerships, support services and resilience building for low-income residents who were impacted by the 2017 Coyote Creek flood.  

The goal of the Neighborhood Recovery and Resilience Program is to create a comprehensive neighborhood plan that includes coordination and assistance with rebuilding community networks in flood-impacted areas and connects residents to resources that build resiliency and preparedness in the event of future disasters. In the first phase of the contract, the nonprofit awardee(s) will conduct a comprehensive needs assessment in the three impacted areas to identify unmet needs and provide services.  In the second phase of the contract, the awardee(s) will develop and implement a disaster preparedness plan in all three neighborhoods.


The RFP application is available on WebGrants. Completed proposals are due Friday, March 22, 2019.
