The Oregon Housing and Community Services Department (OHCS) has issued this RFP for Disaster Recovery and Resilience Program Management Services.


OHCS has established a new section to manage recovery from major disasters. The OHCS Disaster Recovery & Resilience (DRR) section will administer long-term state and federal grants to benefit disaster survivors and impacted communities in Oregon. Primarily, but not exclusively, the section tasked with recovery efforts from the major disasters that occurred during Labor Day Weekend 2020, when fires caused the loss of nearly 4,300 homes in the state.


The Oregon Legislature allocated $150 million in specific wildfire recovery funding along with substantial affordable housing funding, which will be applied to disaster-impacted regions, and the federal government has allocated $422 million in HUD Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds. The CDBG-DR funds, together with the state funding, will fund new programs to help individuals, households, and communities continue to recover. This effort, called ReOregon, will provide new permanent housing in the areas most impacted by the fires. OHCS has set aggressive goals to replace as much of the lost housing as  possible and to provide a comprehensive recovery for individuals and communities impacted by the fires.


DRR will administer the funding, and the selected Proposer will administer ReOregon programs. This RFP is intended to provide program management services for qualifying disasters in Oregon. If a future disaster occurs that substantially overlap in a geographic region or damage type during any resultant contract, OHCS may amend any resultant contract.

The services sought under this RFP are turnkey program management services for ReOregon, including the following:

  • Program management staff
  • Call center services
  • Intake
  • Eligibility review
  • Inspections
  • Environmental review
  • Duplication of benefits review
  • Award determination, notification, and consultation
  • Construction management
  • Quality assurance/quality control
  • Case management
  • Technical assistance
  • Survivor, general public, and applicant communications
  • Loan underwriting, if applicable
  • Closeout and compliance monitoring

The Oregon draft CDBG-DR Public Action Plan, which may be amended, can be reviewed at The Action Plan describes how the state will spend the federal funding to support recovery from the 2020 Labor Day Fires in Clackamas, Douglas, Jackson, Klamath, Lane, Lincoln, Linn, and Marion counties. The program’s goal is that all wildfire-impacted individuals and households have equitable access to the resources necessary to be housed safely, sustainably, permanently, affordably, and in their housing of choice.


OHCS anticipates awarding one (1) contract from this RFP. The initial term of the contract is anticipated to be two (2) years with the option to extend up to six (6) years.
