HUD Issues RFQ for Design Competition to Promote Resilience in the Hurricane Sandy-affected Region
Date: 6/20/2013 - 7/19/2013
U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Hurricane Sandy Task Force
has launched REBUILD BY DESIGN, a multi-stage regional design competition to
promote resilience for the Sandy-affected region. The goal of the competition is
two-fold: to promote innovation by developing regionally-scalable but
locally-contextual solutions that increase resilience in the region, and to
implement selected proposals with both public and private funding dedicated to
this effort. The competition also represents a policy innovation by committing
to set aside HUD Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery funding
specifically to incentivize implementation of winning projects and proposals.
Examples of design solutions are expected to range in scope and scale, from
large-scale green infrastructure to small-scale residential resiliency
The Task Force issued a Request for Qualifications on
Thursday, June 20, 2013. Responses must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, July 19, 2013. For more information, including the
competition process and rules, please read the Design Brief here.
Frequently asked questions will be continually updated here.
