Contract for services to a New York nonprofit organization to administer a statewide transition assistance program that will allow people who are aging or disabled to transition out of nursing homes and into community living accommodations of their choice. Funding is intended to educate, assist, and support older adults and individuals with disabilities who want to transition out of institutional settings.

The intent of this Request for Applications (RFA) is to procure a single vendor to administer a statewide Transition Center infrastructure, which will provide education about community living options, transition assistance, peer outreach and support, and education and outreach to nursing homes to support the transition of individuals from institutional to community-based settings.

Program Goals:

- Program Infrastructure and Oversight: Ensure the statewide Transition Center Infrastructure, including all three core program functions (Transition Assistance, Peer Outreach and Support, and Nursing Home Education and Outreach), meets high quality contract standards in a cost-effective manner.

- Transition Assistance: Provide information about options for community-based care and facilitate transitions of older adults and individuals with physical and/or developmental disabilities who express a desire to leave an institutional setting to return to the community.

- Peer Outreach and Support: Provide information and support to individuals in nursing homes to support successful community transitions.

- Nursing Home Education and Outreach: Provide objective information to nursing home staff to facilitate referrals to the Local Contact Agency, and support collaboration between the nursing home staff and the Transition Centers.
