Contract with Corporation for Supportive Housing, Inc. for Technical Assistance Services on Supportive Housing and Systems Change


The Economic Development Department, Housing and Community Development Department, and the City’s Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) are requesting approval of a contract with Corporation for Supportive Housing, Inc. (CSH) for technical assistance services on supportive housing and systems change.

CSH will provide in-depth systems change, consulting expertise and key experts to implement the plan to reduce street homelessness with particular emphasis on the Downtown Orlando CRA area and the creation of new supportive housing units. CSH will support system change efforts, develop policies and pilots to create supportive housing, provide technical assistance to providers, deliver training and coordinate with downtown stakeholders.

The contract term is for three (3) years with an estimated annual expenditure of $250,000.  The annual CRA expenditure is anticipated at $200,000, with $50,000.00 to be contributed by the City of Orlando each year.  Given the immediate needs and the time required for a competitive solicitation, the City and CRA would like to utilize the consultant selected by the most recently identified competitive selection process that was completed by Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority resulting in Contract RI-2014-002 with CSH.  The scope of work is tailored to the Orlando communities.

No City Certified M/WBE suppliers are registered for this commodity.
