Do you wish to partner with CAHP in constructing and rehabilitating homes in our community?

Capital Area Housing Partnership (CAHP) administers funding from federal, state and local sources to construct new housing and rehabilitate existing housing in our community. We act as a liaison between our funding partners, contractors, homebuyers and owners.

Contractors doing business with CAHP:

  • Are licensed & insured to do business within the State of Michigan

  • Have a current State of Michigan Builder’s license

  • Are not on the federal government’s Debarred Contractor or HUD Limited Denial lists

Contractors who would like to be included on our bidding list should complete and submit an application and the required attachments.  Access the application by clicking here. Instructions available here.


Contracting Preferences: Section 3 Legislation

Section 3 is the legislative directive from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development Department (HUD) providing preference in new employment, training and contracting opportunities generated by HUD-funded projects to low- and very low-income local residents regardless of race or gender. Section 3 also provides contracting preferences to local businesses that substantially employ low- and very low-income residents of the local community.

For more information regarding Section 3, go to:


Women / Minority Business

Because CAHP programs are federally funded, HUD 2006 “Guidance on MBE/WBE Outreach” must be adhered to:


Under the minimum HUD standards, the following guidelines are provided for use by organizations receiving HUD funds and contractors in implementing outreach programs to ensure the inclusion, to the maximum extent possible, of entities owned by minorities and women. In order to comply, each contractor should:

  • Develop a systematic method for identifying and maintaining an inventory of certified minority and women’s business enterprises (MBEs and WBEs), their capabilities, services, supplies and/or products;

  • Utilize the local media, electronic and print, to market and promote contract and business opportunities for MBEs and WBEs;

  • Develop informational and documentary materials (fact sheets, program guides, procurement forecasts, etc.) on contract / subcontract opportunities for MBEs and WBEs;

  • Develop procurement procedures that facilitate opportunities for MBEs and WBEs to participate as vendors and suppliers of goods and services;

  • Sponsor business opportunity-related meetings, conferences, seminars, etc., with minority and women business organizations; and

  • Maintain centralized records with statistical data on the utilization and participation of MBEs and WBEs as contractors / subcontractors in all HUD-assisted program contracting activities.

Each contractor, utilizing the standards and guidelines listed above, shall prescribe procedures and actions it will undertake in implementing a minority and women’s business enterprise outreach program. The above items represent basic outreach-related activities and are not all-inclusive actions a contractor may undertake.
