NOTICE TO CONSULTANTS
FOR HOUSING ACTION PLANNING
The Town of Winthrop and the Town of Twisp Washington solicit interest from consulting firms with expertise in community research, including, demographic data collection, aggregation, and analysis, with a focus on housing needs and planning.
Winthrop and Twisp have each been awarded funding to develop housing action plans over the next 12 months.

The consultant would then work separately and concurrently with the individual towns to develop specific housing strategies. The towns reserve the right to retain services independently but seek to collaborate on the project. More detailed information available upon request.
Submittals should include the following information: Firm name, address, phone, and email addresses; Name of Principal-in-Charge and Project Manager; sub-consultants (if any); the names and experience of employees that would work on the project, examples of successful projects of similar scope.
