Metro Bond Funding Announcements

New NOFA Submittal Process (5/20/20)

Hello everyone,

 

Due to dynamics of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we are changing our submission process for the Washington County Metro Bond NOFA. Proposals are still due by the extended deadline of 4 p.m. on Tuesday, May 26th, 2020. However, we are now accepting online proposal submissions through the County’s ProcureNow system. No hard copy or thumb drive submissions are needed.

 

You will find the NOFA on ProcureNow via the link below. To upload and submit your proposal you will need to create a simple log-in. Proposals can be submitted anytime before the deadline. We recommend that you visit the ProcureNow website and create a log-in soon so that you can familiarize yourself with the website prior to submitting your proposal.

 

ProcureNow link: https://secure.procurenow.com/portal/washington-county-or

 

The ProcureNow system is fairly straightforward and is intended to be an easier and safer method for responders to submit a proposal for this NOFA. If you have questions or need assistance with the ProcureNow system, please contact Shannon_wilson@co.washington.or.us.

 

Thank you,

 

The Washington County Metro Affordable Housing Bond Team
