RFP #2015-036

The City of Middletown (City) and the Middlesex County Coalition on Housing and Homelessness (Coalition) are requesting proposals for the redevelopment of the Mary Shepherd Home (Facility) on the Connecticut Valley Hospital (CVH) campus into permanent supportive housing, with a focus on veterans (the Project). The Facility is located at 112 Bow Lane on the CVH campus and had been serving up to 70 homeless adults as transitional SRO housing.

The Facility is owned by the State of Connecticut, which has been leasing the Facility to the City on a series of 5-year leases. The City, in turn, had been subleasing the facility to Mercy Housing and Shelter Corporation. Mercy recently opted out of the lease, which opens up the possibility of redeveloping the Facility into first-rate permanent supportive housing with a focus on veterans.

Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy and United States Senator Richard Blumenthal have each emphasized the need to end homelessness and to support, especially, our homeless veterans, and Middletown Mayor Daniel T. Drew is working to meet these needs in the City through this project. The City anticipates working with the State to convey the facility to the City for transfer or lease to the successful developer. The goal is to convey the property through an outright transfer.
