Request for Proposals: Program Administration — Foreclosure Prevention Loan Program 

Funding for Program Administrators Only

Responses Due: May 6, 2024, by 5:00 p.m. 


The Office of Housing (OH) is committed to fostering equitable communities and enhancing housing security in Seattle. Through initiatives like the Foreclosure Prevention Loan Program (FPP), OH aims to support low-income homeowners and prevent displacement. Originally included in the 2016 Seattle Housing Levy, the FPP continues its vital role with its recent inclusion in the 2023 Housing Levy. This Request for Proposals (RFP) seeks an administrator to oversee the program in accordance with administrative plans outlined in the Levy. 

Eligible Applicants 

OH invites proposals from qualified organizations capable of administering the City's Foreclosure Prevention Loan Program. Essential qualifications include a minimum of four years' experience in loan origination and servicing, as well as housing counseling services or established referral relationships with Seattle-area counseling agencies. The selected administrator must demonstrate expertise in reaching underserved populations, maintaining meticulous records, providing exceptional customer service, and adhering to fair lending laws and regulations. 

Funding Available 

The current funding allocation for this RFP stands at $200,000, subject to adjustment at OH's discretion. The primary objective of this initiative is to provide one-time financial intervention to eligible low-income homeowners facing foreclosure. Loans of up to $40,000 can be utilized to cover various housing-related expenses, thereby enabling homeowners to sustain their residency and communities while preventing disproportionate displacement, especially among homeowners of color.
