Grants totaling over $450,000 for alternatives to incarceration in New York. The goal of the program is to elicit positive life outcomes through focused programming to help convicts reintegrate into society. This RFP seeks qualified organizations to develop and implement programs as an alternative to incarceration for appropriate offenders convicted of a felony or awaiting conviction. Programs must include screening procedures to best determine eligibility for the program and should be designed for a minimum of 25 criminals. Additionally, programs must include an employment opportunity element to strengthen the possibility of positive outcome.
Proposals are to offer structured supervision and appropriate evidenced-based interventions to improve the offenders' compliance and response to community supervision, while providing for public safety. Eligible services include but are not limited to substance abuse assessments, treatment program placement, outpatient and residential treatment, TASC program services, and drug treatment. It is expected that the program would provide services to individuals with serious mental illness including serious and persistent mental illness, in addition to individuals with co-occurring disorders: individuals who are chemically addicted in addition to being seriously mentally ill.
Additional elements of the program include culturally competent delivery of services and the involvement of peers in recovery from serious mental illness. Preference will be given to proposals that can deliver integrated care for dually diagnosed substance abuse and mental illness. It is anticipated that at least fifty percent of the awarded funding will support programs working with offenders in New York City.
