This is a Request for Information (RFI)

To support this mission, The State of Texas/Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is soliciting property owners to participate in Multi-Family Lease and Repair (MLR) where multiple firm-fixed priced contracts may be awarded to provide housing assistance to families effected by Hurricane Harvey. Under MLR, the State/FEMA is seeking potential owners of rental properties (apartment complexes primarily) that with financial assistance, could be quickly repaired to local, state and federal codes/standards and offered as temporary housing for FEMA applicants.

In accordance with the Robert T. Stafford Act, preference for Local Property Owners will be considered. Local refers to the Counties listed in the Presidential Declaration for Texas DR-4322 (see attached County Highlighted/Colored Map)!

The properties should be complexes that are able to accommodate a considerable number of people in a single location. Each property must have been previously used as a multi-family housing complex and contain three or more rental units. The site must be repairable within a four month period and cannot be located in a Floodway, Coastal High Hazard Area or Coastal Barrier Resource Unit or Otherwise Protected Properties. Within this program, there is no rental cost for the eligible applicant. The repair costs are funded by the State/FEMA and the value of these repairs are deducted from the value of the lease agreement between the State/FEMA and the property owner. If you are a property owner and are interested in this program, please provide the following information:
1. Complex name, location, property owner name, and phone number;
2. Number of vacant units available for State/FEMA exclusive use;
3. Number of vacant units compliant with the American Disabilities Act;
4. Number of vacant units that contain a separate bathroom, kitchen, and living space;
5. Description of repairs and improvements required to make the units habitable;
6. Projected length of time required to make units habitable;
7. History of building's use;
a. Approximate date of construction
b. Dates the building was used for multi-family housing
8. Rental rates during the last year of operation (state whether utilities were included, and if so, which ones);
9. Any applicable pet restrictions, such as what pets are allowed in the units and any restrictions on number of pets or size of pets, and any applicable pet deposits; and
10. Number of parking spaces (including accessible and van-accessible) available for each unit.

Responses to this notification will be used to determine which properties meet MLR criteria and provide the timeliest, most cost-effective means of providing direct assistance to eligible disaster survivors. The Government wants to obtain market information or capabilities for planning purposes.

Responses to this notice for information are not offers and cannot be accepted by the Government to form a binding contract. All responses must be in writing and submitted via email to ( and received no later than 12:00 Noon CST, November 6, 2017. Verification of receipt of electronic transmission is the sole responsibility of the property owner/interested party. The Government will not pay for information submitted.
