The Grand Prairie Housing Rehabilitation Program has as its purpose the prevention of deterioration, slums, and blighting influences in a community through the revitalization and conservation of the existing housing stock. The program seeks to preserve and restore stable, viable, and environmentally pleasing neighborhoods within the city. In doing so, families of low and moderate income will be assisted in securing decent housing, and the burdens placed on a city because urban deterioration can be averted.
The Grand Prairie Housing Rehabilitation Program is administered by the Housing and Neighborhood Services Department (HNS), and funded through a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Housing rehabilitation assistance is performed on eligible properties within the city limits of Grand Prairie.
The Contractor Handbook explains the requirements and procedures for approving contractors to be placed on a list of eligible firms or individuals to perform rehabilitation work for the Grand Prairie Housing Rehabilitation Program. Additionally, it sets forth the policies and procedures for contractor monitoring to assure that their credentials and workmanship continues to be acceptable. THESE REQUIREMENTS WILL APPLY TO BOTH GENERAL CONTRACTORS AND SUBCONTRACTORS.
All contractors must submit and maintain a current application on file at the HNS. Any change of title, address, phone number or insurance must be reported. The HNS office shall submit the contractors name and pertinent information to the System For Award Management (SAM), and verify their experience, ability, financial resources, and satisfactory past performance record before he/she is placed on the approved contractors list.
