Dakota County Community Development Agency 



The Dakota County Community Development Agency (the “DCCDA”) operates an ongoing single family home improvement loan program throughout Dakota County funded with federal and local resources. This program requires certain services of a contracted rehabilitation specialist (the “Contractor”) in order to make sure that loan funds are used and expended in a proper and efficient manner. The CDA is seeking additional capacity from a qualified Rehab Specialist Contractor. The Contractor shall be qualified and willing to act as the DCCDA’s agent in performing the Rehab Services discussed in the request for proposals. The DCCDA anticipates providing a minimum of 6 files in the first year of the contract with the new Contractor. Services shall commence upon July 1, 2022 and, unless terminated earlier, shall continue through June 30, 2023. This Agreement may be extended up to two years (one year at a time extensions) upon mutual agreement of the CDA and the Contractor, dependent upon quality of work and funding availability. The DCCDA may select one or more Contractor to complete the Services during the contract period. Submission Deadline: Friday, June 3, 2022 at 4:30pm RFP Document and Exhibits Questions?
