COUNTY OF SULLIVAN

HOUSING REHABILITATION PROGRAM CALL FOR CONTRACTORS

SULLIVAN COUNTY, PA. – The County of Sullivan provides a Housing Rehabilitation Program for county residents funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). This program was developed to improve the health and safety of residents, promote vibrant communities and neighborhoods, and maintain the inventory of affordable housing in Sullivan County while reducing displacement of low income families.

To better serve its residents, the county is currently developing a list of contractors that will be eligible to bid on all housing rehabilitation projects. Individual housing rehab project budgets range from $1,000 to $35,000 with typically 120 days allowed for completion of work once the contract has been awarded.

Contractors interested in applying for inclusion on the contractor list must attend the Contractor Orientation meeting on Thursday, April 14, at 6 p.m., at the Sullivan County Courthouse located at 245 Muncy Street, Laporte, PA 18626. The orientation will address specific details such as program goals, guidelines and work specifications as outlined by the Susquehanna Economic Development Association-Council of Governments, SEDA-COG. Additional questions will also be answered at that time.

For more information regarding the Sullivan County Contractor Orientation for the Housing Rehabilitation Program, please contact Chelsea Myers by phone: 570-946-5207 or e-mail: cmyers@sullivancounty-pa.us.
