Pre-Application Information:

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) requires all prospective applicants to submit a Notice of Intent (NOI) to ensure a timely and thorough review and rating process. A non-profit applicant’s NOI will also help to facilitate timely review of their prequalification materials. The Notice of Intent must be submitted via the Survey Monkey Apply Portal by March 3, 2021.

The due date for complete electronic application submissions to the Survey Monkey Apply portal is March 17, 2021 at 5:00 p.m.

In addition to the electronic submission, please mail the appropriate documents and attachments postmarked by March 17, 2021

All questions must be submitted by email by close of business, February 10, 2021. A complete list of all Questions and Answers will be posted on the URL for Full Text, below, no later than close of business, February 24, 2021.

Pre-qualification Requirement:
Proposals received from nonprofit applicants who are not Prequalified in the Grants Gateway by 5:00 PM on the proposal due date of March 10, 2021 cannot be evaluated. Such proposals will be disqualified from further consideration. The State of New York has implemented a new statewide prequalification process designed to facilitate prompt contracting for not-for-profit vendors. All such vendors are required to pre-qualify prior to grant application. This includes all currently funded not-for-profit institutions that have already received an award and are in the middle of the program cycle. The pre-qualification must be completed prior to application in order to receive an award under this RFP.

Disclaimer: New York State reserves 5-10 business days from the receipt of complete Prequalification applications to conduct its review. If supplementary information or updates are required, review times will be longer. Due to the length of time this process could take to complete, it is advised that nonprofits prequalify as soon as possible. Failure to successfully complete the Prequalification process early enough may result in a grant application being disqualified.
