PACT Resource Team Technical Assistance Providers

  LISC NYCPublic Works Partners

Local Initiatives Support Corporation New York City (LISC NYC) and Public Works Partners are seeking qualified technical assistance providers to help residents of the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) to meaningfully plan for the future of their communities in connection with the Permanent Affordability Commitment Together (PACT) program. PACT is a critical tool that, through partnerships with private and non-profit development partners, allows NYCHA to not only modernize homes, but also provide enhanced community services and amenities.

As part of PACT, NYCHA has made funding available to ensure that public housing residents can meaningfully plan for the future of their communities by working with them to assess their needs and priorities and connect them with qualified organizations and providers to support them through the PACT investment process. Public Works Partners, along with LISC NYC, Pratt Institute, and Public Policy Lab, is the Program Administrator for the newly created PACT Resource Team. Providers who are prequalified through the RFQ process will become part of a pool of independent organizations and professional consultants who can be tapped to provide direct, technical assistance to residents.
