City encourages roofing & construction contractors to take part in $30M Renew Detroit program bid opportunities

  • American Rescue Plan Act funds to put new roofs on homes of 1,000 low-income senior citizens
  • Phase 1 work to begin this summer; City seeks qualified contractors
  • The deadline to submit proposals is May 23rd; Pre-bid conference planned this Thursday

As ARPA (American Rescue Plan Act) -related work ramps up, City leaders are encouraging roofers and construction contractors to take part in the massive amount of bid opportunities. Specifically, the $30 million Renew Detroit program has an open bid for roofing firms or contractors who can install up to 200 residential roofs. The bid closes on May 23. (See attachment) The program will replace 1000 roofs of homes of senior citizens.

Thanks to ARPA, a congressional measure signed into law by President Joe Biden last year, the City is spending millions of dollars in several areas from neighborhood beautification, to home repair, public safety, arts, and culture, and closing the digital divide. To date, the City has programmed 68% of its $826,675,290 million ARPA funding.  The public can track ARPA spending and progress on its recently launched ARPA website, www.detroitmi.gov/ARPA.

City of Detroit Associate Director with the Office of Contracting and Procurement, Toni Stewart-Limmitt, says “This is an exciting time in Detroit as work with our major ARPA home repair program gets underway. We encourage roofing firms and contractors to take part in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. And we really encourage our Detroit-based minority businesses to get involved as well.”
