OCED also works with housing developers on projects financed through OCED and include: homebuyer programs for single-family home rehabilitation projects and multi-family/rental housing rehabilitation projects.
OCED is seeking licensed general and residential contractors to become approved contractors in order to bid on multi-family and single-family rehabilitation projects funded through the department. Only approved contractors may bid on OCED projects. To become an approved bidder, contractors and subcontractors should inquire with OCED staff. Contractors interested in being added to the approved bidders list may apply anytime.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires OCED to recruit Section 3 contractors. If a contractor gains Section 3 certification they can be eligible for preferential treatment when bidding.
