The Erie County Department of Environment and Planning is currently seeking Proposals from Emergency Shelters for the Erie County Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) Program. The ESG Program provides funding for Emergency Shelter Renovation.

This activity is designed to increase the quantity and quality of temporary shelters provided to homeless people, through the renovation of existing shelters or conversion of buildings to shelters. Funding is available for renovation, including major rehabilitation or conversion of a building to serve as an emergency shelter. The emergency shelter must be owned by a government entity or private nonprofit organization.

The shelter must serve homeless persons for at least 3 or 10 years, depending on the type of renovation and the value of the building (see Schedule “B”).

$50,000 is available from Fiscal Year 2016 ESG funding for Emergency Shelter Renovation. Project completion is time sensitive. All work is expected to be completed and all invoices submitted to Erie County by July 1, 2018. It is the County's intent to select the Proposer that provides the best solution for the County's needs.  

The RFP #1803VF can be found at http://www.erie.gov or a complete package can be obtained by contacting Jennifer Beltre at (716) 858-6927.

All correspondence, communications and/or contact with the County in regard to any aspect of this proposal shall be with Jennifer Beltre.

Erie County Department of Environment and Planning at 95 Franklin St,
