RFP for Site Suitability Tool

All responses are due no later than April 23, 2018. Please see the Request for Proposal in its entirety.
Since the last part of the 20th century, the cost of housing on Martha's Vineyard has soared to such levels that many year-round residents and seasonal workers are unable to find an adequate place to live, and many businesses have increasing difficulty retaining the workforce they need. To maintain a healthy and economically diverse society we need to ensure that there is a full range of housing options for the year-round population by assisting people whose needs are not met by market-rate housing.
