RICHMOND, VA—The Richmond Redevelopment and Housing Authority welcomes local businesses of every type to attend the Virtual Vendor Fair, Wednesday, December 14, 2022 at 10 a.m. This event delivered virtually for convenience to participants is a part of an ongoing series and is designed to provide detailed information on how RRHA conducts business and current and upcoming partnership opportunities.  Registration is required by emailing Assistant Procurement Director, Derek Brooks at derek.brooks@rrha.com or calling (804) 780-6184.

“This event is designed to inform and encourage organizations to partner with RRHA. Our Agency  currently utilizes a wide range of goods and services from all types of businesses. These include office supplies, construction services, maintenance services, professional services, and more.  We want to ensure that every small, medium and large business who desires to partner with us has an opportunity to do so,” said RRHA CEO Steven Nesmith.

This Virtual Vendor Fair will walk potential vendors through the process of becoming a partner with RRHA, provide attendees with information on how to bid on RRHA projects, how bids are evaluated and how contracts are awarded.  In addition, attendees will also learn how to access, not only RRHA opportunities, but other government entities throughout the Richmond VA area and the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Although this and other RRHA vendor fair events are open to all who qualify,  special emphasis is placed on Section 3 businesses. Section 3 is a program of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, RRHA’s regulatory agency, and is designed to provide employment and training opportunities for low-income persons in the Greater Richmond area.
