San Mateo County is releasing this Request for Qualifications ("RFQ") to establish a Pool of Qualified Operators (the “Pool”) who can partner with the County to own, operate, manage, and maintain a property or properties that will be acquired in the event of a successful Homekey application. Properties will be acquired for the purpose of providing permanent affordable housing to the County’s extremely low-income residents, and may include populations with specific service needs such as seniors or county clients, some of whom have experienced homelessness, are at risk of homelessness, and/or would benefit from wrap-around supportive services that can be best provided in connection with permanent affordable housing.
This RFQ contains the information needed by all entities responding to this invitation (“Applicant[s]”) and sets forth the process, submission requirements, and criteria the County will use when selecting an Applicant to operate, manage, and maintain a Homekey Property and provide resident and supportive services. All submissions in response to this RFQ will become the property of the County and will be considered public records.
Applications must be e-mailed electronically to: firstname.lastname@example.org
