Notice is hereby given that proposals will be received by the Town of Smithfield, North Carolina, until 5:00 P.M. EST, FRIDAY, AUGUST 24, 2018, for the following Professional Services to be provided to said jurisdiction




 Project Summary:  The Town of Smithfield suffered significant damage to residential housing during Hurricane Matthew in October 2016. The town is soliciting turnkey professional planning and project management services required to undertake the following activities: 

1)  Submit Letters of Interest and applications for, and manage, proposed Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) and Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) elevation, reconstruction, and acquisition activities for all federally declared disasters and annual FMA application cycles occurring prior to December 1, 2020.  These activities are to be conducted with FEMA funds pursuant to the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief Act, the National Flood Insurance Reform Act of 1994, and the State of North Carolina’s Flood Mitigation Administrative Plan, as administered by the NC Division of Emergency Management.  

2) Compile homeowner data and needs assessments and prepare CDBG Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) applications, and to manage funded projects, as CDBG disaster recovery funds are made available to designated state agencies. These activities are to be conducted in accordance with standard CDBG federal regulations (24CFR570) and standard administrative procedures drafted by the designated state management agencies.


Upon selection of a qualified consultant, the Town of Smithfield will enter into contractual agreements with the consultant, based upon the planning and management needs to be determined by the town and the prospective funding agencies.  Following contract negotiations with the planning and management consultant, the town plans to undertake a similar effort to procure professional engineering services required for the elevation and reconstruction components of HMGP/FMA/CDBG-DR projects.  This is not a request for professional engineering services.

The contact person for this project is: Stephen Wensman, Planning Director
