Request for Qualifications - Not for Profit Agencies - 2012 Hess Drive

2012 Hess Drive, located in Ridgewood Gardens subdivision in Holiday Florida was initially acquired by Pasco County in 2009 through the National Community Stabilization Trust.  This property was transferred to Workforce Housing Ventures, an approved POP agency.  It underwent significant rehab and then was sold to an eligible homebuyer through the NSP Program.  This house, although not in a designated flood zone, is in a low-lying area.  The property may be prone to flooding from significant storm events.  The homebuyer for this property was permitted to sell this home back to WHV.

This agency would be required to rent the unit to an eligible individual or family, with an income level under 50% of the median income that is classified as special needs. A special needs household is homeless, disabled or have an income under 50% of the median income, or other similar group. However, the income must be under 50% of median income. That currently is as follows (adjusted for family size):

          1 person                       $20,100
          2 persons                     $23,000
          3 persons                     $25,850
          4 persons                     $28,700

Agencies must show that they have sufficient reserves to maintain the property if the property is vacant.

Rents are limited to “Low Home Rents” as defined by HUD. That amount is variable depending on the final bedroom structure of the building.

An open house will be conducted at the property on June 18, 2014 at 2:00 PM, where you can inspect the property, and staff will be available to answer questions. Final decisions on property transfer shall be made by the Board of County Commissioners.

The Request for Qualifications and Application are available for review and download.
