Request for Qualifications/Proposals for the new Homeless Services Center

portland news

The Request for Qualifications/Proposals for the new Homeless Services Center, which was approved by the Housing & Economic Development Committee, is now advertised on the City’s website. Proposals will be accepted until 3:00PM on Tuesday, April 27, 2021, at which time they will be opened and read. A copy of the RFP can be obtained by requesting it through the Purchasing Office at (207) 874-8654 or via e-mail at  purchasing@portlandmaine.gov.

On June 17, 2019, the City Council approved the creation of a 200-guest-capacity shelter with complete wrap-around services to be located at 654 Riverside Street on vacant, City-owned property. Since then, City staff has been exploring various development and funding approaches to support the project, including federal and state grant funding along with options to involve the private sector. 

Given the lack of available federal and state support, the City is now looking to engage private sector partners to handle all portions of the project leading up to City occupancy. The private sector partners would then lease the HSC to the City of Portland. 

Depending upon the project approach, the Homeless Services Center could be ready for City occupancy within 24 months.
