Chicago’s Department of Housing has opened bidding for jobs as it seeks one or more retrofit providers to “equitably decarbonize” residential buildings in the city. The job includes providing low- and moderate-income homeowners with home upgrades, not limited to retrofits that may include induction stoves, heat pump water heaters, heat pump clothes dryers, air sealing around doors and windows, smart thermostats, and other interventions.

Proposals will be evaluated and selected based on the applicant’s organizational capacity and values, program design implementation, budget justification and capacity, and experience.

A virtual pre-bidder’s conference was held on Tuesday, Aug. 1, 2023, though a recording of the conference is available from the announcement page, HERE.

Requests for Proposals are due September 1, 2023.
