Request for proposals

MHP is excited to launch a multi-year statewide housing campaign in 2022. We seek to change the hearts and minds of people throughout the state about housing—dispel myths and stereotypes about who needs and lives in affordable homes and promote understanding about how housing affects our ability to succeed and thrive – in order to ultimately achieve legislative victories for housing at the state legislature.  

We hope you will support us in our effort to generate game-changing and sustained housing investments and policies. Linked here you’ll find our RFP for campaign and communications services. Respondents may apply for all or part of the scope of work components.

Thank you for helping us get the word out about this widely!  We at MHP look forward to updating our community as this campaign moves forward. 

Responses are due by Thursday, July 14, 2022, end of business (5:00 pm). Please send all responses via email to RFP_Housing_Campaign@mhponline.org.  Review of RFP responses will begin as soon as responses are received and will continue until selection.
