Printer-friendly versionSend by email

MassDevelopment is accepting proposals for technical assistance from its Real Estate Services Department through Dec. 15.
 
Through in-house expertise as well as contracts with “house doctor” consultants, MassDevelopment helps municipalities and other public entities address their priority planning and development projects quickly and efficiently. The agency also helps communities identify funding sources and coordinate with other local, regional and state agencies to deploy those resources.
 
Proposals are sought for the following types of technical assistance:
• Master planning and visioning for sites and/or districts
• Market feasibility and financial analysis
• Surplus property reuse and/or activation assistance
• Developer tours of local redevelopment planning
• Regional economic development planning
• RFP/Q development and process management
 
Real estate services technical assistance awards will range from approximately $5,000 to $50,000. MassDevelopment encourages contributions from the municipality, community or regional development organization, or other outside entities on all projects, and will require a contribution for projects that applicants expect will exceed $50,000 in services.
 
Evaluation criteria will include the availability of funds and appropriate house doctor consultants, regional team capacity, municipal commitment to work in partnership with MassDevelopment on the project, and municipal capacity to implement and advance next steps upon completion of work.
