The Dallas Housing Authority has published the RFP for the Neighborhood Homes Project in the Dallas Morning News Public Notices. Here is a copy of the notice (bolding ours).


Availability of Up to 50 Section 8 Project-Based Vouchers for
Dallas Housing Authority Neighborhood Housing Pilot Program of Permanent Supportive Housing for
Persons with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities

As a permanent supportive housing initiative, the Dallas Housing Authority (DHA) announces the availability of up to 50 Section 8 Project-Based Vouchers (PBVs) for DHA's Neighborhood Housing Pilot Program of Permanent Supportive Housing for Persons with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities (IDD). The PBVs are available for use in existing housing only. Proposals involving new construction or rehabilitation are not being solicited under this RFP. DHA invites property owners and service providers to submit joint proposals. It is not necessary for a respondent to employ the services of a consultant to be awarded Vouchers under this RFP. Applications for this RFP must: (1) be single family homes located in DHA areas of operation; (2) single family homes with a minimum of two or a maximum of four bedrooms; (3) propose to serve households of members who qualify as developmentally or intellectually disabled; and (4) be willing to certify participants as IDD. A successful respondent will include owners/landlords who will enter into agreements for supportive services with qualified service providers. Proposals from owners who cannot demonstrate such an agreement for ongoing services will not be reviewed. This is a pilot program to determine the success of such collaboration.
