We are all about community at Community Action. Our customers are the priority and it is our goal to ensure every individual receives a positive experience.
I connected with Community Action after speaking with a group of parents. I heard about Community Action’s rent assistance program and called to start my application. Wendy was informative, she told me a lot about some other programs that could help me and she really tried to understand my position. She asked me why I wasn’t able to work and I told her it was because I had to stay home with my 4-year-old. She told me about the Head Start Program and that we could apply for that to help me be able to start working.
My fiancé was diagnosed with COVID-19 which caused us to go from one income to none. My landlord recommended Community Action. Within a few days of me calling, Community Action helped with my rent and utilities. The woman who helped me, Jen, was really nice.
I needed help with my rent and everything was done within a week. I work overnight and Jen stayed in contact. She was very comforting and made everything easy to understand. Community Action made it possible for me to pay my rent.
RFP Notification – April 22, 2021 Proposal Package Available – April 26. 2021 at 10:00 a.m. Informational Web Meeting – May 5, 2021 Proposals Due – May 28, 2021 Contractors Notified – June 14, 2021
Community Action will review all proposals that were submitted by the due date and are determined to be complete. Evaluation of reviewed proposals will be on two criteria.
Qualifications Met: The proposal will be reviewed to determine if all items have been met that were defined under the Required Contractor Qualifications and Agreements section on page 1. Should any of these not be met (or cannot be met by July 1, 2021) and are applicable to the contractor type, the proposal will not be considered further.
Capacity/Capabilities: The proposal will be reviewed to determine if the contractor is able to timely and accurately complete all Weatherization jobs. Specific items that will be evaluate include: 1) the company’s experience and expertise performing work related to weatherization measures; 2) the company’s capacity to provide adequate oversight to crew members; and 3) the qualifications/experience of the crew members. Community Action will not use bid prices to determine inclusion in the 2021‐2022 Weatherization Contractor pool. Contractor prices will be used to determine job assignments, as defined under bullet 25 of the Contract and Memorandum of Agreement. Community Action recognizes that additional information about what a typical job may entail and what must be completed for each measure for the company to appropriately establish a material and labor costs. We welcome and encourage questions.
Proof of insurance coverage is not required to be submitted with the proposal. This will be required before any 2021‐2022 weatherization jobs will be assigned.
Community Action will host a web‐based meeting for interested contractors on May 5, 2021 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
