NEWBURGH – The City of Newburgh has released a request for proposals (RFP #5.20) for reimbursement of expenses directly related to the creation of emergency, transitional, and/or supportive housing.

Funds may not be used for administrative costs in connection with providing housing or support services.
Each applicant may apply for funding for up to 30 units of housing and up to $1,500 of pre-development costs per unit of emergency, transitional, or supportive housing planned.
The RFP is due to the Office of the Comptroller by no later than 4 p.m. on June 30.
