MHA and MAHT Announce Request for Qualifications for the MHA Sites


The Manchester Housing Authority and the Manchester Affordable Housing Trust have publicly released a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for submissions of qualifications from for-profit or non-profit housing developers.  Each respondent will be available to assist MHA/MAHT as they finalize the conceptual plan for the new construction of additional housing at and possible redevelopment of the MHA’s state-aided mixed-income public housing developments located at Newport Park, The Plains, and Loading Place.    MHA/MAHT will engage with each respondent, who will be available to meet with and assist MHA/MAHT in the refinement of the development plan, including discussion of community planning approaches, feasible disposition models, development type, project budget and possible financing options.   

MHA/MAHT, at a later date, after engagement with respondents, and after refining and solidifying the conceptual development plan, will issue a development Request for Proposals (RFP) for the development plan, to formally solicit a development partner to advance the development plan.

Residents may recall that the MHA/MHA issued a development RFP in 2022 for the MHA sites for which we did not receive applications.  After engagement with our consultant, legal counsel and developers it was determined that the RFQ is the appropriate step at this time in the development process.

RFQ submissions are due on August 28 at 4 p.m.  Please see the following link to the page where the RFQ is posted.

Going forward, the MHA/MAHT will notify residents when RFQ submissions are received as well as publicize meetings to be held with respondents.
