Multifamily Energy Retrofit Program (MERP) Workshop

Event Detail:This Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is open to Respondents proposing the retrofit of existing multifamily rental developments which limit at least 70 percent of tenancies to households with incomes at or below 80 percent of Area Median Income (AMI), that were originally Completed prior to January 1, 2005. Respondents will be required to commit to provide an affordability period on the Development’s set-aside units for a term of 10 years from the date the Multifamily Energy Retrofit Program (MERP) loan is closed. Respondents whose Principals have unresolved outstanding past due financial obligations to Florida Housing Finance Corporation, (“the Corporation”), and/or Respondents whose Principals are excluded from receiving Federal contracts according to the exclusions dataset posted on the System for Award Management (SAM) website. Under this program, the Corporation will select Responses on a first-come, first-served basis that meet certain eligibility requirements. Up to $7,533,084 of MERP grant and loan funds will be available. The Corporation may use a temporary County Award Tally in order to achieve geographic diversity. The Corporation is soliciting Responses from qualified Respondents that commit to make improvements which result in measurable energy savings and water conservation. Successful Respondents will also be required to conduct management staff training and resident outreach, as well as provide ongoing energy consumption data, as described in the RFQ. The Corporation will develop the retrofit scope of work in consultation with the Respondent, using an energy audit prepared by a Qualified Energy Auditor previously procured by the Corporation. MERP funding may be used for the following improvements: • Air infiltration (e.g., envelope sealing, duct sealing, weather stripping); and • Replacement of appliances with Energy Star qualified appliances, lighting, faucets/showerheads, HVAC systems, programmable thermostats, boilers/water heate
