Businesses - Register with SAM for CDBG Grant Funded Opportunities

First posted August 3, 2020

When spending Federal grant money, the Parish must procure professional services through companies that are registered with the System for Award Management (SAM). This is an online database that can be accessed through this link

Please encourage any businesses to get registered here if they would like to be considered for grant work in the Parish.  It is a requirement for them to be active on the system. 

Businesses can register in the System for Award Management (SAM) database located at www.sam.govAll current and potential government vendors are required to register in this database in order to be eligible for contract awards and payments.  HUD contracting officers and program office staff conduct market research and verify a company’s SBA certifications through this database.

Terrebonne Parish is focused on reducing our risks to flood and wind from natural disasters and supporting economic stability.  Much of the funding that the Parish receives is Federal funding managed by State agencies.  As such, the Parish follows State and Federal laws when purchasing goods and services.   Services that will be procured this year may include, but are not limited to:

  • Surveying
  • Real Estate Appraisals
  • Legal Services for Real Estate Closings
  • Title Search
  • Environmental Review Services
  • Asbestos and Lead Testing
  • Demolition Services
  • Asbestos Abatement
  • Lawn Maintenance
  • Grant Management
  • Engineering

To be ready for the procurement, companies must be on the SAM registry, and in good standing.  The Department of Housing and Urban Development is focusing on this and the Parish will need to prove compliance.
