RFPs, Notices, and Bids
Since most lenders providing financing to first-time homebuyers require that applicants attend and complete a first-time homebuyer course, the Malden Redevelopment Authority (MRA, representative member of the North Suburban Consortium (NSC) is now offering a program to reimburse residents in NSC communities (Malden, Medford, Arlington, Chelsea, Everett, Melrose, Revere and Winthrop) who complete a pre-purchase, post-purchase, multi-family property owner/landlord or foreclosure prevention course between July 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019. Reimbursement limited to $100 per household.
There is a Federal requirement that all grantees, subrecipients and contractors awarded contracts funded with Federal dollars or receiving Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds must register with the Federal debarment clearinghouse System for Award Management (SAM.gov) and must provide proof of active status on SAM.gov in order to comply with Federal regulations. Registration is free and it takes approximately one month to become active with a valid DUNS number. If a grantee, subrecipient or contractor does not register, they will not be considered qualified and, therefore, will not be able to contract with the City of Malden or Malden Redevelopment Authority for activities funded with CDBG and/or other Federal dollars.
Information and registration directions for SAM.gov.
